Wheel alignment

Hi I am pulling 2108ds with GMC 1500.
I noticed wear on inside front tire and decided to get new tires. Ordered new tires from Mr Tire, scheduled alignment with dealer. Dealer said Camber off on one side and was fixed still had old tires on never mentioned wear. Left and went to get new tires put on and they say Camber is off on both sides and caster on one side. Tires are same exact size but different manufacturer. I think I believe Tire dealer is right since I noticed wear on both sides on old tire?

Are you talking about your GMC 1500 tow vehicle's alignment?

This has nothing to do with your Micro Minnie 2108DS... correct.

Just checking.

How does the tire installer know the camber and castor is off? I'd much prefer to believe the computerized alignment machine than an offhand comment by a tire installer.
If both sides of a tire are worn down and the center of the tread is not, that tire has been ran underinflated/overloaded for a considerable time.


BTW, never cheap-out and get only a front-end alignment, pay for a total alignment so the entire vehicle is steering and tracking correctly. If the thrust angle is out much, when corrected you may notice a slight fuel mileage improvement along with the obvious benefits.
