Also, how is your car used? As in, what type of roads does it spend it's life on and does it see any corners? If it were mine living where I live, more negative camber would be added to the rear!!!

Speaking of the rear, let us know what it does on rough roads and things like expansion joints on the freeway. Keep track of IF the rear darts around more or less with this alignment setting....

This weekend while doing first OC on new to me 350 (4,000mi since purchase and no oil loss (yippee)) it seems it is chewing the insides off the fronts. I'm running 35 PSI on 225/40 so I did the next best thing in the moment and measured toe with a tape measure. Mind I used the tread and a straight edge off the wheel and got the same results and the tire wear agrees with the results found.

Yeppers, toed out nearly a 1/4"....
Backed it up 3 car links, drive forward leaving wheel in its hair down to the right position and repeat tape measure. Toed out same #.... I now have two reasons to straighten the wheel!

Something to keep in mind is these are all just reference numbers. Meaning the factory settings may get you close but the final tweaks apply to car as is, driver, car usage, tire pressure and measurement system.

Try to control, monitor and record what you see and you can manage tire wear.

Wanted to add mine into the mix. S-04 (245) on stock 08 wheels with 16.5K miles. One track day. I had zero toe for the first 10K miles and then switched over to factory toe out. No bushings.

Center is 6/32, outer (4/32), and inner is immeasurable.

Forgot to reply... I did have uneven tire wear but wasn't all inner. Had mostly outer tirewear on the drivers side but inner tirewear on the passengers side. But was definitely uneven wear. No one here has ever mentioned outer tire wear before though. Maybe it's cus I'm too heavy
