At each service intervalWhen a tyre is replacedIn there is any abnormal wear of the tyres on the shoulderWhen manoeuvrability is unstableWhen driving quality is worsenedAfter an accident
Toe in/Toe out - Measures how much the wheels are turned in or out when viewed from a straight ahead.
If the front of the wheels are closer together than the rear of the wheels we call this toe-in.
If the rear of the wheels are closer together than the front then that is called toe-out.
Positive and Negative Camber
If a wheel leans slightly towards the wheel arch we say that it has a negative camber, if the wheel leans in the opposite direction we describe it as a positive camber.
If the camber position changes, it can have an effect on the surfaces of the tyres, which will impact on the stability of the car. We want a vehicle to travel straight and under precise control, so we must make them as perpendicular as possible to the road.
