Civic tire question - May 15, 2008, 08:05 AM

I bought a civic, had Honda of Fairfax do a pre-purchase inspection. He said I need to get a camber kit to fix the rear wheels. The car has been lowered an inch, he said I could go to Just Tires in Fairfax, however I just called them and they said they wont install it.

Who in the area can install it, where can I get it, what should I get?

What size rims are on there now? And what type of suspension did they use to lower it?

Stock (15"?), I have no idea what suspension. I think they kept the current and replaced the coils with aftermarket.

you shouldn't need a camber kit if you only lowered an inch...

call up Ptuning (ptuning.com) or inline pro and have them do an alignment.

Ah okay gotcha. You could check with Merchants in Fairfax, Mr. Tires in Chantilly they should be able to take care of that for you. I wouldn't go to Just Tires for anything as they aren't my idea of a good place period.

you will need the camber kit, an alignment on stock parts wont allow enough movement. but you should only need the rear kit which is easy as all hell to install. it will take all of 20 minutes. but you will need the alignment after it is on.

Get an alignment, it will show you if your camber needs to be corrected, usually for 1" you wont need to do so, if you do, most any shop will install a camber kit.

Goodyear on Main st/236 in fairfax (Hogan and Sons) has guys that will take care of you. Paul is their alignment tech, good guy, tell him Brad sent you.

its a civic, I wouldn't run anything more than 120's up front and 180's in the rear or else your cornering will suffer unless you really want to mess with the suspension....


motorcycle board wtf.......
