As stated, Nitto Neo Gens do have a much stiffer sidewall than most tires which makes them idea for stretching with lots of negative camber.

Actually it's not bad....ceramic pads help a lot....and this stuff it's called Simons gel it's in a yellow bottle you can get it from auto zone it's amazing at cleaning the wheels....you see the pic of the inside of the wheel....last night it was black....I sprayed some on there went to the next wheel sprayed it...came back and SPRAYED it off with water not one scrub and that's how clean it came out. It's a breeze lol

Really? I'll look into that, since my calipers tends to get dirty pretty quick. Would be neat if I could just spray off the dust like you did.

Well, to be honest, my fenders have sort of started to roll themselves from turning. I've been driving kinda hard the past few days to get the fenders used to it.

Let me know man! It's in a yellow bottle it has a electric nozzle to spray with and it's in a yellow bottle....do not wet your wheels before you spray them....spray them with the cleaner while they are dry and then use elbow grease if needed...Then spray off the wheels with water....I went to a DIY car wash for the pressure washer...did the job just fine!
