Negative camber will cause wear on the inside of the tire in street driving. 2 deg. will definitely wear the inside on the street. However, 2 deg. neg. camber would be good for autocross.

Kudos Groove Ford. You rock!

I see a lot of complaints on these threads about how dealers mess up sales or service. So, I think when a dealer goes above and beyond, the dealer should get the kudos it deserves.

If you are using them for track/autocross, make sure they meet the rules of the class you are in. The wider rim might bump you to the next class.

Since you are saying "lapping day", I assume you are doing a road track. If you are new to the sport, I would do a club event such as a NASA HPDE. The reason is that you will be paired up with an...

I use the PFC "Z-Rated" pads (compound 10). About $70/axle. Comparable to the HP+ but less dust. Works very well. No fade. ATE 200 fluid. Slotted rotors will probably not help your cause.

I would much rather do camber plates, but it will push me out of F-Street. Neg. -2.0 Deg., is enough for street tires. Even -1.5 Deg. would probably be ok.

Is is truly OEM strength? Also, does the bolt and mod make the camber adjustable or do you get a single, altered camber spec?

Will 15" wheels fit over your front brakes? 17" was OE on the GT. I don't think 15's will fit.

Your best selection of performance street tires will be in 18" right now.
