How to do a wheel alignment


nearly impossible but there are some things that you can do to reduce tyre wear.. 1---place the wheels in the straight ahead position. Using a spirit level place it vertical across the front rims touching only the rim top and bottom . adjust to achieve the bubble just touching on the outer line. That should give you about 1/2 to 1 degree camber. next measure with a tape the distance between the left and right rims 1/2 way up on the front of the rim. Record this measurement. Repeat the measuring at the back of the front rims at the same level as the front measurement was taken Adjust the tie rod ends evenly until the front measurement is anout 1/8 to 1/4 " smaller than the rear measurement. This is the toe in/ out measurement. The caster adjustment you will need a caster angle gauge. They are available and they stick on the hub center. and measure the difference in degrees from full left to full right turn. It need to be about 1 to 1&1/2 degrees positive.. It would be cheaper on the tyres to have the alignment done professionally and a sight quicker.

I want to know how to fix the alignment on my 1995 honda accord ex.


Before making wheel alignment adjustment, perform the following checks:
  1. Tires should be equal in size and runout must not be excessive. Tires and wheels should be in balance, and inflated to manufacturer's specifications.

  2. Wheel bearings must be properly adjusted. Steering linkage and suspension must not have excessive looseness. Check for wear in tie rod ends and ball joints.
  3. Steering gear box must not have excessive play. Check and adjust to manufacturer's specifications.
  4. Vehicle must be at curb height with full fuel load and spare tire in vehicle. No extra load should be on vehicle.
  5. Vehicle must be level with floor and with suspension settled. Jounce front and rear of vehicle several times and allow it to settle to normal curb height.
  6. If steering wheel is not centered with front wheels in straight-ahead position, correct by shortening one tie rod adjusting sleeve and lengthening opposite sleeve equal amounts.
  7. Ensure wheel lug nuts are tightened to torque specifications
Ride Height Adjustment

Before adjusting alignment, check riding height. Riding height must be checked with vehicle on level floor and tires properly inflated. Passenger and luggage compartments must be unloaded. Bounce vehicle several times, and allow suspension to settle. Visually inspect vehicle from front to rear and from side to side for signs of abnormal height.
Measure riding height. See figure. Riding height between left and right sides of vehicle should vary less than 1′ (25.4 mm). If riding height is not within specification, check suspension components and repair or replace them as necessary.
Wheel Alignment Procedures

Honda recommends using commercially available computerized 4-wheel alignment equipment. Follow equipment manufacturer instructions to obtain vehicle alignment settings. Use following procedures for necessary adjustments.
Civic Camber Adjustment
Compare camber settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If camber is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck camber.
Civic Caster Adjustment
DO NOT use more than 2 shims. If more than 2 shims are required to adjust caster angle, check for bent or damaged suspension components.
Compare caster settings with vehicle manufacturer recommendations. If caster is incorrect, check for bent or damaged front suspension components. Replace faulty components. Recheck caster.
Civic Toe-In Adjustment

  1. Secure steering wheel in straight-ahead position. Measure front wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, loosen tie rod lock nuts. Turn both tie rods equally in the same direction until front wheels are in straight-ahead position and toe-in reading is correct. Tighten tie rod lock nuts. Reposition tie rod boots if twisted.
  2. Ensure parking brake is released. Check rear wheel toe-in. If adjustment is needed, hold adjusting bolt on rear compensator arm and loosen lock nut. See figure. Adjust rear toe-in by sliding rear control arm until rear toe-in is correct. Install NEW lock nut, and tighten it while holding adjusting bolt.
Wheel Alignment Specifications

  • Camber - Measurement in degrees.
    • Front: 0 (range -1 to 1)
    • Rear: 0.33 (range -1.33 to 0.67)
  • Caster - Measurement in degrees.

I need to replace the tires and casters on my probasics wheelchair. I am not sure what I should order and whether the tires come on the wheels ot what.


As a general rule, it is best to replace the caster as a complete assembly consisting of tire and wheel hub. Usually this is the only way to replace casters when the tire is molded on to the wheel hub. It is the best way to replace the caster since you get a tire, wheel hub and 2 new bearings.
With regard to the drive wheels on a manual wheelchair you can get just a new tire. With a plastic mag wheel and hand-rim you can sometimes get just a replacement snap-on tire to replace the existing.(Snaps on like a rubber band using tire irons). If the hand-rim, wheel, spokes, and bearings are worn or broken, you are usually better off replacing the wheel assembly. With power chairs, it is more cost effective to only replace the drive tires and use the existing wheel rims. Hope this helps.

Question on rims on a 1988 IrocZ28. the front rims have a stamp on them indicating 'front' and the back rims 'rear'. the tire size that came on the car when I bought it are P245/50/R16 (96T-mts). Im pretty...


Those wheels are what is referred to as "staggered" meaning different sizes front and rear. If you measure the width of the wheels the rear ones will be wider. I'm not sure what size you are supposed to be using but the rears should be wider. This kind of setup is not designed to be rotated. You could rotate side to side but this won't even your wear out.

Wheel broke of my Power Chair


I assume you are referring to the caster tire, not the drive tire. You will need to check to see if the rim is a split-rim or a solid rim. A split-rim will have 4 or more bolts holding the two halves of the rim together. If you have flat-free tires i.e., foam-filled solid tires, evidenced by the lack of a valve stem which is used to inflate non-flat-free tires (pneumatic), you would remove the wheel from the caster by rermoving the center bolt acting as the axle. Then remove the bolts holding the rims together. Reposition tire on top of one of the rim halves, then place the other rim half on top so that the bolt holes in the top one line up with the holes in the bottom one. You need to buy a couple of bolts that are about 3/4 in or more longer than the bolts that you removed, as you now must press the two halves back together and the stock bolts probably won't reach through. Put the two longer bolts in opposite of each other in two holes and tighten down. When the rims are pressed together, then put the stock bolts in, remove the two longer ones and replace with stock bolts. Place wheel back on the caster. If you have pneumatic tires (requiring air), make sure to always deflate the tire completely before attempting to loosen the bolts holding the rim-halves together. The same process is used for drive tire replacement. If the rims are not split rims, then it is easiest to buy an entire new wheel and tire as getting it back on is quite a chore requiring a press and lots of tequila! It's easy to break the rims. Good luck.

Wheel size


My Clio has 15 inch rims and takes a 185/55 R15 tyre. I don't know if all the models are the same. If you are replacing the rims be careful your new rims have the same number of stud holes (mine is 4) and the same pitch circle diameter (PCD) (mine is 100 mm I think).
