When you lower the front end, the tyres have an increased angle or chamber relative to the road. Its like you see on a mega dumped v8 super car. The tyres are on about a 20 degree angle by the looks of them. The tyre tends to make most of it contact to the road on the inside of the tyre, making it wear alot quicker then the rest of it, or "scrub". In order to correct this, washers are put in place to correct the harsh angle, and make more of the tyre contact the road instead of all the pressure on the inside tread, hence the tyre wearing alot more evenly, and last alot longer.
