If you’re not running a good set-up, you are losing time everywhere on the track. Every corner has different characteristics. And your car needs to be ideally prepared for every situation depending on your driving style, weight distribution and other factors.
What I do is recommend you to get in touch with a skilled suspension shop who knows what they are doing. That’s the best advice I can give you right now 😉
Here are some basics for you though 🙂
1-5mm lower ride height compared to your stock one
2-Camber alignment -1 degree at the front, -1.5 degree at the rear
3-Caster alignment +4 degrees at the front, +6 degrees at the rear
4-Toe setting -0.5mm for every tyre diameter at the front, 0mm toe in at the rear
5-Wheel alignments are very important so either do them by professionals or learn how to do it yourself. It’s not hard, but you need some time and patience to understand the process first
6-When you are doing wheel alignments (especially on lowered cars) or changing your wheels make sure your car is exactly in the middle of the road by measuring your clearances with a ruler. That way, you avoid having to much camber at the front and/or rear which leads to uneven tyre wear. If you don’t have a ruler, use a string 🙂
To get best results, your car should be shod with one of the following combinations -Wheel & tyre packages
A combination of custom fitted aftermarket wheels and tyres. Although this might cost you more money, it’s worth every penny spent because you know for sure that all four tyres have exactly the same diameter and are perfectly balanced. And that is the most important thing, no?

It isn’t your fault if you don’t know about wheel and tyre packages. Some shops try to hide this fact from you and tell you that it’s more trouble than it actually is. If your car isn’t running 100% as it should, there’s a big chance your tyres aren’t balanced or toe set correctly (and of course the suspension geometry has nothing to do with it) Visit us at https://www.autocraze.com.au/store/wheel-tyre-packages/ to know more about our services.…
