(I.e., if you mostly drive on the freeway, he/she could set the rear camber a little less negative). This would also identify if the current alignment is out-of-spec. These cars can be aligned to wear evenly if desired. The negative camber is there to allow aggressive cornering - not due to anything inherent to mid-engine or Porsche designs. Also, any good alignment shop can properly align these cars (I would take the Porsche-recommended settings with you, supply the tech with them, and discuss your wear issues. Good luck. Jeff G.
This is the best advice for your situation... take it to heart.
