Wheel Alignment Parameters
1. Camber: Camber is the angle of the wheels when viewed from the front or rear of the vehicle. A wheel that is tilted inward has negative camber, while a wheel that is tilted outward has positive camber. Camber can affect tire wear, handling, and steering.
2. Caster: Caster is the angle of the steering axis when viewed from the side of the vehicle. A positive caster angle means that the steering axis tilts towards the rear of the vehicle, while a negative caster angle tilts towards the front. Caster can affect steering stability and the returnability of the steering wheel to center.
3. Toe: Toe refers to the angle at which the front or rear wheels are tilted inward or outward when viewed from above. If the wheels are tilted inward, this is called “toe in,” while if the wheels are tilted outward, this is called “toe out.” Toe can affect tire wear, handling, and steering.
4. Thrust Angle: The thrust angle is the angle between the vehicle’s centerline and the rear axle’s geometric centerline. It is measured by comparing the direction that the rear wheels are pointing to the centerline of the vehicle. The thrust angle can affect vehicle stability and how straight the vehicle drives. A thrust angle that is not perpendicular to the centerline of the vehicle can cause the vehicle to pull to one side.

It’s always best to consult a professional mechanic or alignment specialist for the most accurate recommendations for your vehicle.
Wheel Alignment Brief Information
Wheel alignment is the process of adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are perpendicular to the ground and parallel to each other. Proper wheel alignment is important for several reasons, including:
1. Safety: Properly aligned wheels help ensure that a vehicle travels in a straight line and handles properly, reducing the risk of accidents.
2. Tire Wear: Misaligned wheels can cause uneven tire wear, reducing tire life and requiring more frequent replacements.
3. Fuel Efficiency: When wheels are misaligned, the vehicle may have to work harder to maintain speed, which can result in decreased fuel efficiency and increased costs.
4. Ride Comfort: Properly aligned wheels can result in a smoother ride and better handling, improving overall ride comfort.
About Cadillac CT5-V
At the 2019 New York Auto Show, the CT5 made its first public appearance. The fastback body style of the Cadillac CT5, in contrast to that of its predecessor, the CTS, and the flagship CT6, draws inspiration from the fastback models that Cadillac produced in the late 1940s. The CT5 went on sale in the autumn of 2019, and there are a total of four different trim levels to choose from. (Luxury, Premium Luxury, Sport, and V).
The high-performance Cadillac CT5-V was introduced to the public on May 30, 2019, alongside the Cadillac CT4-V. It was designed to take the place of both the CTS-V Sport and the XTS-V Sport. The 3.0-liter LGY twin turbocharged V6 that powers the CT5-V generates 360 horsepower (268 kW; 365 PS) at 5400 revolutions per minute (rpm), and it generates 405 pound-feet (549 Newton-meters; 56 kilogram-meters) of torque at 2350-4000 rpm. In the United States, the base price for the year 2020 was listed at $47,695 for this model. Starting with the 2020 model year, the CT5-V was equipped with MagneRide, which is GM’s Magnetic Ride Control.
