 Alignment Terminology

Positive Camber And Negative Camber

Camber is the angle of the wheels relative to the ground, when looking at the car from the front or rear. Positive camber refers to the outward tilt of a tyre – imagine the middle lines of the tyre being in a ‘V-shape’. Negative camber refers to the inward tilt of a tyre – imagine the middle lines of the tyre being in an ‘A-shape’. Camber will differ between vehicles and is determined by the vehicle manufacturer.

Toe In And Toe Out

Toe refers to whether the tyres are pointing inward (toe in), our outward (toe out) when looking at the car from the top or bottom. Toe in will resemble an ‘A-shape’ and toe out will resemble a ‘V-shape’.
