Default Re: How to measure front wheels to straight ahead

Here's a trick to check the placement of the front and rear wheels to each other in a straight line. Get about 12' of elastic thread and attach a fish hook or safety pin opened up on each end. Then at centre wheel height hook the thread to the inside or the tire and bring it around to the outside, then down the side of the car to the rear tire at the centre and hook the elastic on the inside of the tire. If the front and rear wheels are in alignment the thread will touch the front and rear of each tire. With no gaps. This will also tell you that there's "Zero" toe. Hope this is clear enough. JP
