Abstract (en)

[origin: CA2316254A1] The invention relates to a device for fixing a wheel-alignment gauge to a rim of a wheel of a motor vehicle. According to the invention, a base part has means for fixing the wheel-alignment gauge in a predefined reference direction in relation to the base part. Three supporting arms are arranged on the base body which extend substantially radially in a plane which is perpendicular to the reference direction. Spacing elements are positioned on the supporting arms such that they can be displaced longitudinally in relation to same. The ends of the spacing elements, which serve to ensure a three-point mounting on a wheel rim, lie in a plane which is perpendicular to the reference direction. The invention also provides for means for fixing the base part on the rim. At least one of the spacing elements (24, 54) can be adjusted cross-wise to its supporting arm. In this way it is possible to adjust the position of the spacing elements to different divisions of the wheel mounting nuts.
