Definition of Auto Alignment

    Toed In or Toed Out

    • "Toed in" refers to when the front of the tire points in toward the center of the vehicle. "Toed out" refers to the tire pointing outward. Both can cause excessive wear on the tire tread and pull the front end in one direction.

    Camber

    • Camber refers to the top of the wheel leaning in or away from the center of the vehicle. Excessive wear on the tire and a pull on the front end in one direction can also result from camber.

    Caster

    • Caster refers to the relationship between the left and right wheels. A caster problem means one points farther forward than the other, which will pull the front end in one direction.
