I recently had 4 new continental DSW’s mounted / balanced and an alignment done on my ‘13 optima

The guy let me know he did the alignment as good as he could but there were some issues and he supposedly couldn’t get it “perfect”

Can you guys take a look at the printout and let me know what you think? Also I noticed on my new mounted tires there’s only weights on one of the rims and the other 3 have no weights. Car does hold a straight line pretty well and doesn’t pull anymore like it used to.

thanks

Camber right front still way off. Right rear off but not by much at all.

Gotcha - from my understanding people are saying with the optima there’s no way to adjust the camber without getting specialty bolts for it ?

That's pretty much every car. need a camber adjustment bolt kit front and rear most times and not some of those cheap plastic kits i've seen.

Normally when the car is on the rack and camber found to be out of spec, they'll just replace the bolts to get the camber in spec. rather than send the car out with incorrect numbers. Those bolts are only @ $10 bucks.
