To best save your automobile’s tires from wear and tear you want to make sure you align them properly. Due to bumps, holes, and gaps on the road along with the weight of your vehicle you’ll get misaligned at some point.
You want your vehicle to go straight when on a straight road. Your vehicle is misaligned when you are on a straight road and let go of the steering wheel and it starts to veer to the left or the right.
For auto enthusiasts, they will keep the car straight but will also add a little toe and camber.
In automotive engineering, toe, also known as tracking, is the symmetric angle that each wheel makes with the longitudinal axis of the vehicle, as a function of static geometry, and kinematic and compliant effects.
Camber angle is the angle made by the wheels of a vehicle; specifically, it is the angle between the vertical axis of the wheels used for steering and the vertical axis of the vehicle when viewed from the front or rear.
For me, I have about 1% of camber/toe. Best talk to your mechanic about these things. Also, most name brand/big companies will set your vehicle to zero camber and no toe. Mainly because they do not have the proper tools.
Become a Safer Driver
When you drive in a careful and safe way, you can make your life a lot easier when it comes to keeping your tires and your car in general in good shape. In serious situations such as an Immediate Threat Suspension or the suspension of your license, you should sort the situation out and learn from mistakes. But even if you haven’t had an accident, you can try to drive in a safer and more careful way to prevent unnecessary damage or wear and tear to your vehicle.
