The issue of tire wear has persisted in Tesla vehicles for several years, with each tire potentially costing up to $600 and having a lifespan of only 5-8k miles.

One of the options on the market is an adjustable camber arm. The part itself would cost between $1k to $1.5k depending on the brand, plus labor, which is another 3-4 hours. It can cost as high as $2500 just to reduce the camber on the rear.

Adjustable camber arms are great for folks who track their cars and need the ability to dial in camber from event to event. However, for most owners who use their cars daily, the ability for adjustment is not as important, as the camber will be set at a certain amount and will remain unchanged for the rest of the ownership.

At Secret-EV, we are looking for a solution that can permanently provide camber reduction at a reasonable cost.

In response to this challenge, we have developed a precision-engineered shim kit designed to mitigate camber-related issues and extend tire tread longevity.

Crafted from high-grade 6061-T6 alloy, our shims are meticulously machined to seamlessly fit between the camber arm and frame, effectively reducing camber misalignment.

Do you have experience with how these shims impact existing warranty with Tesla and their service centers? Will they void anything do to aftermarket parts? Any help on this front is appreciated.

*EDIT* Is there anything available for 2020 models?
 
@Secret-EV , so I finally had service done on my X for the clicking when turning and the creaking at start and will install the shims I purchased from you this weekend. I was talking to a couple friends and there was a debate on camber for a good balance of tire wear and cornering for street use. One felt that it would be better to have the rear only have -0.5 camber and the other said having the rears around -1.3 or -1.4 would be the better balance of wear and cornering. I know your recommendations are for -1.0 in the rear. So it sparked the question of which is better between those two options for balance of tire wear and cornering? -0.5 or -1.3/-1.4

IF you already have the shims, you get what you get. You either add a shim or you don't. The harder you corner, the more camber you'll need.

Make sure you get a lifetime alignment and not one from Tesla. Lifetime is maybe $100 more, but you can redo it for free every 5-6k miles. I found out after an alignment that I needed more shim on the right to balance things out.

Yep, was going to get the Firestone lifetime alignment option. Seems to be the only one around me that does lifetime. Was just considering which is more optimal since there seems to be different schools of thought at least with a few people I know.

We recommend the thicker shims for all Model X vehicles. The camber reduction amount will be slightly less on the Model X due to the suspension angle and the weight of the car. With the thicker shims on the rear of the Model X, your camber will sit between -1.1 ~-1.3 at low setting.

As we mentioned in the previous post, your front tire has only about -1 degree of camber, with a narrower tire. Having more negative camber on the rear will not make the cornering any better as your front will break traction before your rear did under extreme condition. (aka understeer)

Yes, I was going to install what you had suggested to me. I just thought it was an interesting discussion between two different peoples viewpoints and since you guys deal with camber, if there was an opinion in general. Either way, I already have my shims and will be installing this weekend.

I printed off a $20-off coupon and had an appt at my local Firestone on Memorial day. They asked if I wanted their one-time alignment and I told them, "no, the lifetime", they pulled out a $40-off coupon, good only on the holiday. So I got the lifetime for not much more money than a one-time.
