Ok question? I put very few miles on my mustang so tire wear is not as important as handling. Is their any settings I could use for better handling? thanks Lyle

Was my quote in the context of a Shelby control arm lowering?

I have lowered A-arms and had the frt end aligned using Brandas dimensions.The tech told me the same thing about tire wear,but its a trade off the inside wears out during regular driving and the outside wears when your really driving hard and I havnt seen any excessive wear and the car drives very well on the street.
