For sure I was at that level at some point between when I had the rear toe set to 0.11 inches total (0.15 degrees) and it slipped all the way up to something approaching 1 degree total!
But I've...

For me, I just find it hard to believe that anyone with experience would like *more* rear toe when *less* was subjectively so much better for me. But then autocross is kind of a different thing,...

First lemme say that preferred rear toe can be down to driver preference.

You should... Fractions of a degree on camber, no big deal. Fractions of a degree on toe, much bigger deal.

Why not? These tires are well known to have a short life anyway, and for sure the max...

Only in "tread width", which for most isnt a big deal... in terms of section width and diameter, it's no different from most eP 225/50-16s.
245/45-16 is also quite pooched on a 16x7.5 wheel, not the...

I do know what happened here because it happened to me TWICE, exact same wear pattern, tires worn out ridiculously prematurely. This was due to excessive rear toe-in, period. It is NOT "overinflation...

If you're concerned about staying within factory spec, it's worth noting that it is *not* 0.24 inches. It is a range from 0.16 in. to 0.32 in total. 0.16 inches would improve things a bit, but as I...

0.20 inches on one side, what was it on the other side? If other side was still 0.14 inches, that's 0.34 inches total, or 0.79 degrees. That's a lot! Tire wear doesn't surprise me with that much...

Because they are more $$$, heavier, and (subjective) look a bit cartoonish and out of place on a small sports car like the S2000.

There is tremendous selection of performance tires for 17" wheels...

Are those the measurements before or after alignment? Given the symmetry of toe measurements and "perfect" 0.00 up front, I'd guess after? If so what were "before" measurements?

Looks are subjective, but I never liked the looks of the MkIV. It's kind of an amorphous blobular lumpy potato-looking thing, with a kind of vacant glassy-eyed stare. I vastly preferred the FD and...

Total toe is what's important, toe on one side doesn't tell us enough. What was it on the other side? Also, is that in degrees or inches? Units!

Many on this forum (not myself) would suggest that a 255 needs to be on a 10" wheel minimum!
245/40 is definitely not a stretch on a 9" wheel. Normal passenger car fitments (including AP2) put...

Funny, I got the impression from tracking my S2k of pretty much sitting at the rear axle, just like in the 240Z. Very different to me from Elise, Cayman, 911, etc. other MR or RR cars. Also...

That is NOT "overinflation" wear. Which isn't even so much a thing on radials anyway... That old "rule" applies to bias-ply tires. Alignment check will reveal the truth....

Minimum spec for AP1 is 1/8" or 0.3 degrees total rear toe-in. You can definitely run less than that. I'd say 0.1 to 0.2 degrees total. 0.0 would probably be fine, but 0.15 is IMO a good target to...

Almost certainly an alignment issue. Same thing happened to me, rear toe went way out of adjustment and the rears wore down evenly over 3000ish miles. 1/8" toe wouldn't do that, but still I'd...

I'd rather see them do a 250Z, with 240Z size and proportions, basically a fixed-roof S2000. Can't hope for 240Z weight, but 2600 should be achievable, and 2800 lb. would be OK.
