Toe


Toe In or Toe Out condition is the #1 cause of worn tires on the front or rear of your vehicle. If the front tires are not parallel to each other, the you will notice a scrubbing on the insides or outsides of both tires. Rarely will a toe in or toe out condition cause your vehicle to pull


Camber


Camber is the inward or outward tilt of the tire from vertical. Camber will cause wear to the inside or outside edge depending upon which direction the tire is leaning. A lot of vehicles that pull to oneside or the other is cause by an out of camber situation.


Caster


Caster is the forward or rearward tilt of the tire from the center of the axle. All vehicles will have a slightly forward tilt in their front axles. This aides in steering and steering correction. Caster can also cause your vehicle to pull to onside or the other. Caster may also cause a wandering effect while driving.


Thrust Angle


The thrust angle is measure by a perpendicular line bisecting the angle from the rear axle to the front axle. We've also seen cars or trucks going down the road that look like they are trying to drive sideways. This is caused by the overall thrust angle being off to oneside or the other.
