Known as Tracking, Alignment or Wheel Alignment, this is a process of measuring a series of complex suspension angles and adjusting the car to the optimum settings allowing maximum tyre performance and consequently peak handling.
The outward (negative camber) or inward (positive camber) tilt of the tyre. The camber settings can be affected by poor road surfacing.
Caster is the angle of the steering pivot. Caster is positive when the top of the pivot leans rearwards, negative if frontwards. Caster is not adjustable.
The angle of the tyre itself, whether the front of the tyre is closer (Toe In) or further apart (Toe Out) than the rear of the tyre. Adjustment to keep this within specification is often necessary.
Simply the steering wheel being dead centre when travelling in a straight line on a straight and level road. When performing wheel alignment, the steering center should be in place.
