How straight is your steering wheel?

Hi all-when travelling in a straight line is your wheel straight or slightly to the right for the road camber?

On a three lane road, the road crown means the wheel is a little to the right in the left lane, straight in the middle lane, and to the left in the right lane.

The wheel will only be perfectly straight on flat ground.

My steering wheel was of centre when traveling straight, I took it to sts tyre pros & had it geo'd where they check & adjust camber, caster & toe. Steering wheel was straight & tyre wear has decreased. It only cost 65 but that was two years ago.

Thanks-she had a four wheel alignment at the stealers few days ago-thought it wasn't off centre before I took her in.

Just take it back, they've cocked it up and should fix it for free.

They need to centre the steering wheel and lock it there while adjusting things, presumably they've not quite had it centred.
