Toe-In


Toe in, or positive toeing, is when the front of the wheel points towards the vehicle's centerline.

  • Toe is the measurement of how much the wheelspin in out from the straight-ahead position
  • The measurement is made in inches, millimeters, of degrees.  The ideal running toe is zero. This means the wheels are parallel while rolling straight ahead. When the wheels point in, the toe is positive. The amount the wheels point inward is toe-in. If the wheels point out, the toe is negative. The amount of the wheels point out is toe out. 
  • Zero toe means the wheels run parallel. They are the same distance apart at the front as they are at the rear
  • Toe is set with the vehicle standing hill. Typically, the front wheels of a rear-drive vehicle are given a slight toe-in of about 1/8 inch.
