comm lathe first, i'd say. if camber is set up the right way the tires should be OK, they should wear pretty evenly, BUT if a comm really needs cut, you can't run your car anymore or it's be half as fast.

just my.02c............

You can cut tires on any lathe but you really want a comm lathe if you going to cut your armatures.

comme lathe would be more useful cause it's inevitable that you will need to cut your comme than true your tires.
