tire size needs to match neg camber????

I have rear 18x9 on 225/40/18
The tires are pretty stretch , and I have neg -2.4 camber
will the cause it to be unstable on high speed corner or instance highway speed?
which size tires are best of my rims

What offset are your wheels? Are your fenders rolled at all?

ET 35 18x8. 18x9. 225/40/18 all around
front and rear both -2.4 camber. The rear is stretched tires, front is perfect size.
the car handle like crap on high speed.
if I keep -2.4 in front and -2 in rear, does that make sense?
or front n back should have same camber

You might be able to get away with a 255/35/18. Your car looks pretty low though so I'd recommend a fender roll if you go that route.

The reason you may be experiencing unstable handling at higher speeds could be a few things. I would check your alignment first, and then order wider tires in the rear, if you can.

Definitely get an alignment check. -2.4 degrees of camber in the front sounds you are maxed out on camber.

I was thinking about the rear tires too. But as lots of people got stretch rims here , they don't seems to cause problem for them.
-2.4 camber all around, I am on coilover with camber plate.
I call up the shop, I said small corner and low speed corner is sharp, but high speed is bad.
They said -2.4 seems correct camber to him......
He suggest me to stiffen up the front coil.
I really don't think that has to do with it
