    Will there be any complications for having an Aptera aligned?

    Motorcycles never need alignment, but this has three wheels. Is it a simple two (front) wheel alignment? I’d think it would be that simple, but I’m no engineer. I mean we’re talking hub motors and wheel skirts. And will the rear wheel ever need alignment? Help, Aptera.

    This is a good question, Douglas. Hadn’t thought about it. My guess is there will be alignment specs for the front wheels only.

      I am just thinking about the rear wheel.

      Yaw misalignment would still cause crabbing.

      Camber misalignment would cause uneven tyre loading.

      Toe issues not applicable because there is only one rear tyre.
