Alignment is one of the key maintenance factors in getting the most wear and performance from your tires. Today's modern suspensions require a precise four-wheel-alignment that can only be acheived through a modern alignemnt system. This applies to both front and rear wheel drive vehicles.
Camber is the angle of the wheel, measured in degrees, if the top of the wheel is tilted out then the camber is positive, if it's tilted in, then the camber is negative.
Caster is the angle of the steering Pivot, measured in degrees.
Toe on the vehicle is the most critical alignment settings relative to tire wear. If the toe setting is just
1/32-inch off of its appropriate setting, each tire on that axle will scrub almost 3 1/2 feet sideways every mile, therefore reducing tire life.
