    Alignment

    I got a new car noticed the alignment was off. I prefer to set toe to Zero, which is not factory. Even stock is about +\- .10 degree. Car seems to track perfect. Tires are worn a bit due to bad former toe. I think it was a recent issue since tire shoulder is ok, not worn Excessively. If zero feels ok should I just leave it?

    Re: Alignment

    hard to believe 0 toe feels ok on a fwd. I would think would probably wander a lot on center, especially during acceeration, and feel uneasy on rough pavement... even though the static toe is 0, it's likely toed out much of the time while the suspension is dynamic.

    That said, I'm not sure I understand your concern - if you like it that way, keep it that way. What are you concerned about?

    Car pulled left when I got it. Wheel was not centered. 2 issues I cannot live with. So I adjusted toe and car is better. Wheel is centered and car drives straight with no correction required. Tires were at 30% tread left so I feel it is good for now. I have different tires lined up
