- n. An inwardly-angled adjustment, especially a slight inward alignment of the forward edge of a motor vehicle's front wheels to improve steering and minimize tire wear.
- n. the alignment of the front wheels of a motor vehicle closer together at the front than at the back
“The brake blocks themselves can tilt and swivel in every direction, making fine-tuned toe-in and height adjustments a breeze.”
“With toe-in what a wonderful noise-easing discovery brake pad wear is asymmetric: there just seems to be a lot of useful pad on the 180 degree other end.”
“It is also why smaller pads with more toe-in help.”
“I cut my pads and holders as short as I could from the back end, and, combined with a lot of toe-in, reduced the chatter enough that I could race on it without feeling like I was putting myself or other riders in danger.”
“To understand the reason why it happens and why reduced pad size, lots of toe-in, and a tight headset help take a look at the chart titled “Brake Shudder in cantilever brakes.””
“Pad position under a small angle (“toe-in”): Always look that the brake pads touch the rim first at the front of the pad.”
“At the beginning of the season, both bikes otherwise had exactly the same magnesium frame, same IRD front cantilever brakes, with stock (long) pads with threaded posts, and both had the same pad toe-in or about 2mm end to end.”
“I will hit the brakes just hard enough to cause my car to toe-in a bit and then let up.”
“Misalignment camber and toe-in can reduce the life of your tires, so be sure to routinely inspect for uneven tread wear.”
“This means that a complex set of software algorithms can provide the same kind of benefits as rear-wheel steering and exaggerated toe-in without the expense or efficiency losses of a mechanical system.”
