Camber plates are not only used as an aid in fitting wider wheels and tires but also as a tool in tuning the car and a performance enhancement. Any wheel and tire set up can benefit from camber plates because a person can use more of the tire's tread effectively when under cornering loads. A 245/40/18 R compound tire is a very wide and tall tire and would still need camber plates in the front. Comparatively a 245/40/18 R compound tire could be sized the same as some 265/35/18 street tires. The only 245/35/18 R compound tire that any tire manufacturer produces is a Kumho V710 that utilizes older tire technology and is not favorable compared to the Nitto NT01 or Toyo R888.
