My ritz runs on 195mm tyres and I've always (visually) felt that the rear tyres have a slight negative camber. Have seen this in swifts with >185mm width. Don't know if there is a default negative camber in all stock cars (which becomes prominent with wider tyres). Could somebody please confirm?

Is there a relationship such that (all) FWD cars have rear tyres negatively cambered (or vice versa)? If yes, why?
I can second that. Because after getting alloys in my ritz, i noticed the rear tyres develop a negative camber. Moreover i have noticed a little negative camber in my dzire zdi as well.. I am not sur if this adjustments are deliberately done by the companies.. In the road i have noticed many cars with negate camber ibthe rear wheels specially the i20s, vernas, crv's, swift...

Default Re: CamberTire : Cone-shaped Tyres for High Camber Set-ups

I am in a fix here,my Linea has a certain degree of negative camber,and it is actually more than the specified limits,and i acted careless for 3 weeks by not getting the alignment done,and noticed that front right Tyre has excessive wear on the inner side,after sales guys mentioned something about camber adjustment bolts which are supplied by fiat to fix the camber angle.

Has anyone used these type of bolts?,how do they help,and is it the correct procedure to fix the camber?
