I recently found a very pristine 2001 Carrera 4,Black with 37,580 miles on it. I knew what I was getting, and I knew I had to do the IMS Bearing and RMS. With all that being said I am still learning some of the basics and prefer to have others with experience give me valid advice. This brings me to my question. I recently checked all my fluids, air pressure and everything else needed for a 500 mile drive from Tampa to Columbia, SC. I arrived and had a slow leak in my right rear tire. I looked at it and the wire threads were showing through on the inside of the tire. When I checked before I left it looked smooth but driveable so I wasn't too concerned, however I nnow have to replace my tires. Currently the rear tires on it are NEXEN, 265/35ZR18 97Y N3000. Now looking to replace them but would like to know if anyone has any experience with any specific tire that might be good, great or BAD? The next question is because the inside of the tire wore through, I am thinking that my Camber may be set incorrectly to the negative the bottom of my tire is angled out farther than the top. I realize I want this stance for improved cornering but it may be set too far.I plan to have it checked when I get back to Florida but just curious if anyone else may have experience with this. Thanks for any advice. -- Trevor
