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!

Just to put a plus one on this... lol I just turned 63k miles on my front tires... and they still have tread all the way around. Side walls starting to crack though because they are old... Replacing them next Monday I think. LOL just had to share!

Default 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.
