Hi all,

Finally found the Measurement Report for my Treg wheel alignment



You can clearly see the 'Total Toe' for the front wheels was 2' outside the top limit. Personally this seems a tiny amount to cause tyre wear, but what do I know.

Ross,

I'll be honest here and say I am no wheel alignment guru at all, however my dealer informed me that the wear was due to bad wheel alignment (and this was stated before the test above) and they said the above results proved it.

Hi Kaine

Not all measurements are on your print off.What is clear is the front right caster leaves a lot to be desired.Untill the caster is corrected,that amout of error is ott
