Post Camber on my 712 .
The front wheels tilt inward quite a bit and does make a strong track on a gravel road. Is this normal ? MY TIRE GUY SAYS IT CAN'T BE AND WON,T PUT ON NEW RUBBER UNTIL I GET IT FIXED....NOT SURE IF ANYTHING IS WRONG OR NOT ? Anyone help on this. Its my first unit and I know very little about it. The manual is mostly in German , so little help.

Can you post a pic or two that shows what you mean? What did you mean by "makes a strong track.."?

Sounds normal. Mine are basically the same. Unless it's loaded, all the tires are tilted outwards at top, due to the suspension design.
I rotated them often, and ran my tires until the outside edges are worn down, then I remounted them with the opposite sides outward and run them down too.
Maybe I got twice the mileage that way? :wink:
