Re: [DMCForum] steering geometry - new question



it sure would, unless you convert to degrees and adjust by using degrees.


I'm sure the manual assumes that you have standard equipment - or at
least a standard wheel diameter.  This is not really that unlikely, as
you'd get thinner wall tires if they were on larger rims.  Otherwise your
car might look funny and your speedometer/odometer would be all messed up
too.

This would also mean that moving to a larger rim (and staying at the same
overall wheel diameter) wouldn't change the alignment.
