Camber Alignment Angle
What is camber alignment angle?
The camber alignment angle is defined as the inward or outward tilt of the tire/wheel when compared with a true vertical line running through the spindle.
Front wheels normally have a small amount of positive camber
Positive Camber—When the top of the tire/wheel is pointed out
Negative Camber— When the top of the tire/wheel is pointed out
Effect of camber alignment angle on tire wear
When the camber alignment angle is off, the tire tread will wear on either the inner or outer tire shoulder depending on whether the camber is too positive or negative.
