Club Car Front End Alignment Problem

Hello,

I have a 96 Club Car DS with new tires, 4 months old with a front end alignment problem I think. The golf cart shimmies a little side to side and the right front tire is beginning to show signs of wear on the outside edge. The other 3 tires look OK. This is the third set of tires and wheels. I'm guessing there is an alignment issue. How do you go about aligning the wheels?

Thanks for your help

Well, on a lawn mower, I have measured the distance between the inside at the front of the front tires and again at the rear of the front tires. Then I set them so the font measures a little narrower than the rear. A little toe in is supposed to help fight play in the steering system and help keep the front wheels from wandering so much.

Set your tow-in at 1/8th of an inch. The front of the tires will be 1/8th inch closer to each other than the back side of the front tires.

This is also E-Z-GO's specifications for toe setting too. Larger tires make no difference. To much tow-in will cause the tires to wear too quickly.
