What is camber? | Scott's Fort Collins Auto

What is camber?

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.
