Default Front wheel geometry.

Anyone know the front wheel toe-in on the 2008, it's the 1.2 85bhp engine if that makes any difference.

My daughter's car is wearing the front tyres badly on the outside edge, and this can often be due to too much toe-in. Just like to check to see if it's out.

Why not buy a Trakrite alignment tool?

And that is callibrated to every model of every car? Seems to me it will tell me what the alignment is, but not if it's correct.

I got one of these about 5 yrs ago its paid for its self as it appears to be spot on if used on a flat drive or garage floor

You can find tracking data on the net buy from the makers of the tool or servicebox

Nothing in Servicebox unless you pay for it.

I've made my own gauge up which is accurate enough, but need to have some idea if it's even toe in or toe out. Some front wheel drives are indeed toe out.
Though all the Pugs I have had with a Haynes manual have been a very slight toe in. Dare say the 2008 is the same. But prefer not to guess.
