I would think, you’d need the technical drawings, for the wedges. Not sure just photos would do. Angles, the size, materials.
I guess your machine shop, could experiment with prototypes. Like Paul did.

Why not Contact Barnes machine shop. I believe their still around. Paul’s a nice guy. He might share those, maybe even make you some.

I still have his old business card.

I own a 2015 Brabus with 17' rear wheels. There is an excess of rear camber (stock setting) The inside edges (3"-4" wide) wears out completely to thread bare in 12-15,000 miles.


Believe me, I am on my outside sidewall every chance I get (left or right). The tires are almost is never flat & level to the pavement. I have followed my daughter through canyons and these Brabus cars look like this always, no difference if it is going straight or rolling on it's sidewalls!
