Re: [DMCForum] steering geometry - new question



Cover what?  !!

We were talking about the front wheels, and Walt mentioned that there is
a conversion from inches to degrees for the rear wheels on the noted
page.  The conversions are correct when measuring tow-in distance over a
"diameter" of 28 inches.  

The wheels for the rear of the Delorean are 235/60R15 stock, which has a
26" diameter at the tread.

Other wheels that would have a 28" diameter are:
235/70R15
275/60R15
235/60R17

It is obvious that the conversion was done for a different tire. 
235/70R15 I think is the most likely suspect.  

your radius theory is interesting, but according to the conversion chart
on k.08.02, that would put 45 inch rims on the car.  Swwweeeeeeeeeet.
