Is my tire slanted inward?

It looks like my rear passenger tire on my 07 Si FG2 slants in towards the car a bit... Does anyone else see this? I don't have a pic of the diver side rear tire, it looks like it slants inward a tad also, but the rear passenger is more noticeable. Is this a problem?? I just had tires put on yesterday by discount tire, shouldn't they have seen it?

Yes, honda screwed up in the early 8th gen civics and have excessive camber in the rear that can cause excess tire wear. They have a TSB for this and it is a known issue. They sell the updated rear upper control arms to correct the excessive negative camber issue. You can tell if the vehicle is equiped with the updated rear upper control arms by looking at them, the updated ones will have a "C" stamped on them, if they dont, they are not the updated ones. Good luck, lol.

How much is that? Easy to install? The tires I got can be rotated to any spot, I may just keep rotating them every once in a while.

I have this problem on my 2011, and my arms have the C stamp on them. Has been this way since new.
Hate these cars' rear suspension. Horrible.

Install on the rear is very easy, just a few bolts and removal of the tire..

Can you guys link me to what I would need? And would it require an alignment? Thank you!

you should get it aligned afterwards, but I just eyeballed it and drove no problem for over a month before getting it on the alignment rack

check the site sponsors, both SPC v2 and skunk 2 arms are good. also the suspension parts FS section
