    Most likely it is. If it isn't, you'll notice a "feathering" on the front tires. (See the pic)

    If you think about it, message me Monday (I won't get home until Sunday night) and we'll work out something on the SPC bushing kit that I have on my toolbox.

    Is your car lowered? You said that you bought it 8 or 9 months ago; are the rear tires that you just replaced the ones that were on the car when you bought it? If so, how worn were they then?

    Looking at that wear, I'd look more towards toe adjustment over camber, especially if the car is at stock ride height. Wear from excessive toe will kill tires way faster than camber will.

    I thought about that before I made my post. There's no feathering of the tread blocks, it's all even wear. That's camber wear.

    Not lowered and it had stock 255/45 tires on it. The wear is even and smooth all way around tire with the right one a little worse. I’ve got new 275/40 all way round now. If I go with adding the camber bushings, would I need to get it aligned afterwards? Just wondering if while adding the bushings if the toe would get messed up. Trying to save a little money and do what I can myself if possible

    Yes, it'll need realigning after you install the bushings because the toe will be affected. Not bad, just a tad.
