It's worth giving something else a go, you might even find that weird circular thing in front of the driver's seat actually affects the direction of travel.

Can you actually buy tyres for £40 these days?

Excessive camber can cause it to follow the cambers of the road but only on the front in my experience. A full proper 4 wheel alignment using OEM settings as a base will sort it out.

I fail to see how shit tyres or wheels can cause the issues you're having TBH Unless the wheels have the wrong offset I suppose.

Just my 2p worth :)


Oh and Toyo do make a decent road tyre - the R1R ;)

There standard rims had a snapped coil which i though may be the culprit so i replaced all 4 springs with lowering spring it hasn't made it any worst but its definatly not solved it

Lowering the car could have induced more negetive camber which could make your problem worse. 


I believe the R1R is the same compound as a 888 but has a tread pattern more reminicent of a road tyre rather than a track tyre :)

£40 a corner is mega cheap for something decent, £120 a corner for average tyres in 245/40/17 for my m3 evo! and they won't last 6 months

Guy I know bought a 911 GT2RS. That was £1600 a set. Luckily, they'd sometimes last two trackdays before they needed replacing.
