Looking for what other's know about the rear toe in experience on pull and tire wear. Does any one know for sure,personally if leaving the caster as it is, and just fixing the toe in the Ions, is unsafe. Caster is not adjustable on the IONs. The Ion is being driving daily and has been with those alignment values with no problem, front for 8 weeks with new tires and rear for about 10 days.

I know from experience that goofed up toe-in numbers like these can cause a pull on the steering wheel. And pull the car to not steer straight hands free.

What puzzles me is my daughter thinks the tire pull started after the rear tire, drivers side got busted up (pot hole?) bad and replaced. And not after the early curb-drive by took out the Passenger side front tire. And yet my experience says the bad front toe in numbers are causing the pull, and possibly the rear.


"What are you trying to do?"

As little as possible, LOL
