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 Blackwing
The CT5-V Blackwing was announced in early 2021 for the 2022 model year as a higher performance version of the CT5-V and is considered the Cadillac CTS-V’s spiritual successor. It has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 668 hp (498 kW; 677 PS) and 659 lbft (893 Nm; 91 kgm) of torque. It comes standard with a 6-speed manual transmission and an optional 10-speed automatic transmission. The CT5-V Blackwing is expected to have a 0-60 mph (0-97 km/h) time of 3.4 seconds with a 10-speed automatic transmission and a top speed of 209 mph (336 km/h). Cadillac announced upon its release that the CT5-V Blackwing, along with the smaller CT4-V Blackwing, would be the company’s final gasoline-powered V models.
Carbon-ceramic Brembo brakes are also available for the Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing. The optional carbon-ceramic (copper-free) system is approximately 64 pounds (29 kg) lighter than the standard cast-iron system. Cadillac is offering a carbon-ceramic brake package for the first time. (Source:Wiki)
