daniel000, what you need is a camber kit. Camber is the wheels leaning in or out. If you watch the touring cars, they have a heap of negative camber dialed in , to keep more tyre on the ground as they corner. I used the shim type on my car and I am pleased with them.

They are only used on the front. I got mine from Bursons, and cost about $150, 18months ago. I fitted them myself, in about an hour. Had the wheels aligned by a professional, since then, no issues.

All I did was put the camber set in and had the wheels aligned and never touched it again. I was 53 when I did it ,so not a spring chicken. I reckon if I can do it, then anyone can.
