wheel allignment Understanding Wheel AlignmentThe wheels on automobiles do not point straight ahead.  They are mounted, or “aligned”, at specific angles slightly offset from straight ahead. This is done to stabilize the steering of the car and to reduce tire wear.  Depending on the vehicle, this alignment involves Camber (inward or outward tilt of the wheels when looking head on), Caster (wheel tilt front or back looking from the side) and Toe-in/out (looking down at the wheels from above). The adjustments are measured in small fractions of an inch and require specialized alignment equipment for automotive technicians to adjust. (more…)
