Tires are the lifeblood of a Jeep. They take you from point A to Z, over, under, and around all manner of obstacles off road.
Tires are the lifeblood of a Jeep. They take you from point A to Z, over, under, and around all manner of obstacles off road. While many Jeep owners spend a great deal of time and money purchasing and installing new tires, it should be said that aligning those tires is as crucial. Without proper alignment your KJ will not handle as well, the performance will be off, it may begin to pull to one side, the steering wheel could begin to become misaligned, and in the end, could be potentially dangerous to operate. Jeep tires are not lined up like some other vehicles. Jeep utilizes a toe-in, which is a slight angle to the tires. This contributes to their ability to be versatile vehicles off road. Use the following measurements and chart to determine the proper alignment widths for your Liberty KJ. These measurements include the preferred ranges for total toe, caster, fixed angle camber, and the thrust angle for the rear tires.
|Total Toe||Caster||Camber (Fixed Angle)|
|Range||+0.075° to +0.325°||3.4° to + 4.4°||-0.750° to 0°|
|Total Toe||Thrust Angle||Camber (Fixed Angle)|
|Range||-.16° to .66°||-.25° to +.25°||-.625° to .125°|
