Thread: rear wheel camber

  1. #11
    You never cease to amaze me chas!

    From your chart, do I have it right that a 25" wheel with 2 degree of camber would add 0.87" of width to the chair, versus no camber, and 4 degrees would add 1.74" of width?

    Thank you

    You are reading the chart correctly. But be aware, significant-digit accuracy is misleading: real-world factors (e.g., tire & wheel characteristics) can affect these dimensions significantly. In other words, the 0.87 is about 3/4 - 1", and 1.74 is about 1-1/2 - 2" depending on a specific setup. I kept significant-digit accuracy only to reveal the miniscule change in RSH caused by camber changes.

    Duly noted, thanks. I have had the desire to go 4 degrees, for whatever reason(s), but in the end I don't want to add the width.
