    Does Tesla have an adjustable camber bolt now for the rear? My left rear camber is -2.2 and I'd like to bring it closer to the 1.6 that my right side is at.

    Alternatively, shims, adjustable upper links, or upper links made to slightly longer lengths to reduce negative camber.

    I believe there are offset bolts which may give enough of a change. BBC Speed & Machine builds the adjustable upper links, but Joe's out of them for about 8 weeks.

    -1.6 is not what lolachamp car uses. (-1)

    Sure, but my tire wear has been fine and -1.6 is on the lower side of the -1.75 spec.

    That's all very nice. You must have 19".

    I have both. Recently got 21s to add to my set of 19s. That's why I went in for the alignment because I know the 21s are more susceptible to bad alignment. But nearly every performance oriented car I've ever owned has been in the -1.5 range for rear camber and I've never had an issue with tire wear at that angle provided that toe isn't too positive. That said, the MS has the highest positive rear total toe spec of any car I've ever had.
