I'm very skeptical. The main reason to add the camber into the suspension is so that when you go hard into a corner and the tire rolls, it will now have the full contact patch instead of rolling onto the outside edge. If you have camber built into the tire, then you will still roll onto the outside edge, so you might as well run a regular tire with the factory alignment angles. I would be curious to see an impartial comparison with track times with the same car on the same day, same driver, and comparable treadwear tires with the only difference being the camber angle on the alignment, and the tires.

This is precious. They stole my idea for angled shoes for people who run track!

I think it might be worth a try.

Now, on the topic of wacky tire ideas ...

Does anyone remember TwinTires? I saw ads for them in the 1990s. Couldn't find a single reference to them on the Internet lately. I guess maybe there's one now.

this is like putting a tire with camber wear on a car that has no alignment issues..... that in it's self will cause issues, wearing out uca lca bushings, etc.
