Factory alignment specs suck anyway. I put -1.5 camber in front, same in the back with near zero toe. Quite an improvement. Gas mileage went up around 2 mpg, no more squealing on the tight turns and no pull to the right.

When I first got it I took it to the dealer complaining and they said it was aligned in spec. Which it was.

Since I haven't been to the track this year & have no intentions of going due to lack funds & focusing on more power this yeat, I realigned my car setting camber to -1 (F) & - 0.5 (R) for now.

I just had the back put to -2.7. The factory 19" back tires were wearing on the outsides with the factory -1.5 in the rear.

I REPLACED THE ORIGINAL DUNLOPS WHEN I BOUGHT MY 09 GENESIS 4.6 USED WITH 21,000 MILES. I HAVE HAD VERY GOOD LUCK OVER THE YEARS WITH MICHELIN MX4M'S WHICH ARE RATED AT 40,000 MILES. WILL HAVE TO SEE HOW WELL THEY WEAR ON THIS CAR...WHICH I REALLY ENJOY!

Recommended New Tires

Hey does anyone have any suggested tires to get for performance tires? I'm gonna need new tires soon, probably around 2 or 3K miles.
