Default alignement specs

Does anybody know the factory alignment specs for a 2007 Gallardo Spyder?

I just had some tyres fitted and the car is driving all over the place.
I find myself fighting with the steering wheel to keep the car from turning left. The car feels very nervous now and wants to follow every dip and groove on the road and when I floor it at any speed the rear wants to go in one direction and the front in another.

I'm hoping this is due to alignment as when I had my old badly worn tyres on the car it drove perfectly straight.
I installed some good used tyres at the front of the car as a temporary measure a couple of days ago as I'm still waiting for Pirelli to receive the new stock of front PZero tyres.

Besides alignment, you might also be faced with a pulling tire:

Tire Tech Information - Diagnosing Tire Pull

I have been through that once -- TireRack replaced the bad tire
under Pirelli's warranty without any trouble.

Hey Banana,

I dont have the alignment specs but the tread on the used tires might be uneven. Check that the tires are the same specs. Also slightest disproportion can cause the car to steer away from the desired direction.

Thank you

Kind Regards,
MRajeh

The tread on the used tyres look fine and even with plenty of life left with a manufacture date of mid 2009. I will get the car aligned and hope for the best. The car is hard work to drive in the city as is and eventhough I will eventually replace the front tyres again with a new set as soon as they are available at the distributor I need to find a solution for the time being.

Tyres are Pirelli PZero and I'm running 34psi at the front and 32psi at the back.

Regards

I'm guessing there is nothing special about aligning a Gallardo and any shop with a laser alignment machine should be able to do it.

Speaking of alignment specs, has anyone found a setting that is better than the factory recommendation?

Correct.

I however made a mistake!

Here are the correct specs:


FRONT:

Camber: -0deg 40' to -0deg 50'
Toe-in: 0deg 01' to 0deg 03'
Caster: 6deg 0' to 6deg 30'


REAR:

Camber: -1deg 30' to -1deg 20'
Toe-in: 0deg 05' to 0deg 06'


I goofed the rear ones. Confirmed these against the service manual.

If you do anything along the lines of twisty or track driving then add WAY more front camber. The car is set up to understeer like a pig from the factory.
