static toe

static toe
static toe-in or toe-out of a pair of wheels, at a specified wheel load or relative position of the wheel center with respect to the sprung mass, is the difference in the transverse distances between the wheel planes, taken at the extreme rear and front points of the tire treads. When the distance at the rear is greater, the wheels are "toed-in" by this amount; and where smaller, the wheels are "toed-out." Note: the static toe (inches) is equal to the sum of the toe angles (degrees) of the left and right wheels multiplied by the ratio of tire diameter (inches) to 57.3. If the toe angles on the left and right wheels are the same and the outside diameter of tire is 28.65 in (727.7 mm), the static toe (inches) is equal to static toe angle (degrees).
