On my 335 I run neg 3.2 camber front and neg 1.8 rear with the same toe settings as the ZHP and get only slightly accelerated front inside tire wear.

With these rear settings rear tire wear is even.
Do you mean -0.5 to -1.1? It seems like such a small difference, is that kind of camber adjustment worth much on hard turns, i.e., can you actually feel the difference when you are not racing all the time and just turning aggressively in every day driving?

Meaning they should have the ZHP stats in there as well? I am going to Firestone where I do think they use the electronic equipment to get everything right.
