Thanks Dr Bones

I was lucky enough to get a cancellation today and so was invited to visit Dr Bones for a full Geometry on my IS200. The man is a master of his craft ! He explained what was out, how he would change it and then showed, step by step how he dragged all the wheels to point in the same direction. Brilliant !

Mine is a stock standard SE but even so, after his magic touch the tyres have been coated with limpet juice and it corners on rails ! No more wandering in and out of the lorry grooves on the M4 ! Just for the peace of mind in knowing that all the wheels are pointing the same way and are set up as good as they can be makes it worth the trip.

Thanks Tony !

Thank you for the kind words. Your car was a typical Lexus, who's chassis position not only spoiled the drive it also spoiled the front tyres. Simple calibration to the wim positions and a compliant car like yours is a pleasure to set. As for the running explanation? I prefer the owner to watch :unsure: It's your car, your Geometry, so watching it being recovered is only polite in my book, plus we can talk about any techie stuff if you feel the need. See you in 2000 miles for the free fine-tune.

Take the drive to see Tony (WIM) (Wheels In Motion).. you certainly wont regret it and if you're going to get a full geom done then get it done by the geezer that wrote the set up :winky:

hmm I'm due new boots soon, so I might pop down there and see what they can do for me before getting expensive tyres - my steering wheel points slightly off centre when going straight so I hope this can be rectified as well. This really bugs me !!

Im going to see the DR very soon!

As soon as my shocks arrive!

I hope he solves the Front inner tyre wear Actually im 100% certain he will!!

We will... The wim positions have been used Globally for three years now, so reasonably proven to stop the tyre wear, improve the handling/steering feel and braking performance.

hi doc,

can you give me your settings for a std is200 sport, so i can get my geometry set up as it wears on the edges of my front tyres quite bad, as when i have it 4 wheel aligned they dont do castor/camber just toe in/out, or if you wont give me the settings can you tell me where you are based or reccomend someone near me at south wales ,near neath,swansea, cardiff area of s wales.

thanks

I can pm you the settings but cannot control how well the car will be set outside of wim> http://www.wheels-inmotion.co.uk/ or TDi> http://www.tdi-plc.com/

We have cars come to us from all around the UK and indeed Europe in desperation to finally resolve the habitual front tyre wear issues....

If you can come to us we can deal with any complications on the fly.. If not i am prepared to send the data as requested.
