Re: A Little Wash and Show (bb vign)

Anyone else think that those wheels could use an alignment? The picture makes the front wheel seem to be slanting outwards, which would be what? Camber?

Magic Blue looks great. You have done a good job of keeping the front end free from rock chips!<p><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>vivek9856</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">Anyone else think that those wheels could use an alignment?

If it is the front or rear of the front wheel, that would be toe. If it is the top or bottom of the front wheel that would be camber. I don't think you could go off of these picks to say it needs any adjustment. It could just be the driveway.
