Caster, Camber and Toe
The alignment of your wheels can be measured on 3 axis and each axis determine how your tires will perform, as well as what type of wear patterns will emerge over time. We make sure the caster, camber and toe of your wheels are measured and calibrated for optimal driving:
Camber is the angle of your wheels measured perpendicular to the ground.
Caster is the angle of pivot of your wheel.
Toe is the inward or outward angle of your tires from a front-facing perspective.

Plus, a proper wheel alignment will reduce premature treadwear and help reduce the chance of tire failure—not to mention improve fuel economy!
