    Is a tire aligned if the amount of thread showing on one side is more than the other side on axle adjuster screws? Or should they be equal. Got my bike aligned at dealer and they aren't even close. Thanks

    The amount of thread showing is really irrelevant to the alignment but if I did see a big difference from side to side I would wonder why and I would double check it for true wheel alignment.

    In a perfect world the threads showing would be equal and the wheel would be true to the frame. But difference can exist.
