Inside tire tread is wavy.

Hey guys quick question. I installed some lowering springs in my 2001 GT and now the tires are wearing on the inside. The wear is really wavy. You can run your hand on the inside of the tires and you can feel it going up and down. Will the camber being out cause this?
Thanks

That's odd. After lowering my car I got some pretty heavy camber wear on the inside but it was smooth.
Maybe the toe is off too? Either way, you need to get a couple of tires and get that alignment set. If anything else is wrong or wore out, they'd be able to tell you once they get it up on the alignment rack.

That's camber wear
Your alignment is bad.

Can you post up a picture of the wave you're talking about? Has the car been aligned? I think it might be high time to pick up some cc plates-I ran J&M's Caster Camber Plates on my Bullitt with a 2" drop and never had and issues after the fact and they should clear that up for you! Let me know if you have any questions and I'm here to help!

Sounds like toe wear to me, it may have some camber wear too but the wavy part is definitely toe

Well when u change the camber like that it throws the toe out as well thats why when u do an alignment u set the caster/camber first then u set the toe ( im an alignment tech for goodyear ) also have u ever changed the shocks/struts? If they are old and worn out they could also cause cupping/feathering of the tires but either way u need some cc plates to properly set the camber/caster on our cars so start with that then go get ur alignment done and if ur shocks/struts are old it would be wise to change them out to ( i have tokico shocks/struts and are happy with them )
