Camber is defined as the inward or outward tilt of the wheel at the top as viewed from the front.  Camber is measured in degrees; a wheel with zero degrees camber is vertical.  A wheel that tilts outward at the top has positive camber.  A wheel that tilts inward at the top has negative camber. The proper camber settings on a vehicle will improve road isolation and directional stability.  Incorrect camber angles can cause tire wear and handling problems.
