    Anyone Know The Tracking Settings For a Coupe Turbo?

    Alright peeps....just ended up buying some new tyres for my car.
    As the insides had completely gone for about 25% of the tyre.

    Had the new tyres put on today and they checked the tracking and noted to say it was within tolerances.
    Now if it was withing tolerances then it would have not worn the tyres in the first place...unless camber could have adjusted and its not lowered.

    Skeptical i took it to another garage for checking and they say that both wheels toe out by about 0.5 degrees.
    In my mind if there toeing out now, then while accelerating there going to try and toe out further.
    But unsure wether a FWD car trys to toe in or out while accelerating.

    So what is the desired amount of toe in/out or would it need to be at 0 degrees and have neither toe in or out?

    Noticed in another post that a guy checks his every week or two at work and he states it should be set at 0" 0" but that makes no sense to me.

    So any of you top bods out there gimme a reply....as its chewing my head aswell as the tyres!

    Cheers in Advance!

    i do check mine weekly and 0' 0' means that the total toe in out should add up to zero so if a garage says that yours is 0.5 then that means your wheels are facing inwards 0.5mm and it has a tolerance of 1.0mm so its within it tolerance but ask him what the back flags are on as they have to be the same number (that is if they are using a supertracker)

    Well, ive just had them tracked so there bang on parallel.....was toeing out by 0.5 degrees im afraid.
    Not inwards...no wonder its been wearing the insides off them.
    The handling has become sharper now, and its not trying to pull the steering wheel either way when i put the toe down.
    Sort of use to dance up the road.
