The next stunt is to adjust the toe-in. You just grab a place where you know you can reproduce it on both wheels. I like to look down the sidewall with the end of the tape. And Mark's going to grab a tire tread that he knows he can get on both sides. MARK: It's seven and three quarters. DOUG JENKINS: So you just take that same measurement front and back. MARK: It's over an inch and a half, toed in. DOUG JENKINS: Inch and a half toed in is going to make squealing sounds as you go down the road. It'll be hard to turn and it'll wipe out tires and it won't handle so well.
