In Reply to: Kit for rear wheels posted by Roger on October 01, 1998 at 21:29:58:

: Somewhere I read there is a kit which can be installed on a Z3 which will keep the wheels straight and elimanate the wear on the inside of the rear wheels.
: Has anyone have an experience in this matter? Considering the cost of tires this might be a worthwhile investment.
: Appreciate any information in this regard.

: Roger

Negative camber at the rear wheels helps adhesion during high cornering speeds. As load increases the tires actually "straighten" out and become perpendicular to the road. Trust me, you don't want to "fix" this.
