Alignment Question- Late model

I have my camber set at 1 Deg on the front of my Vert and they are wearing on the outside. The manual says that is correct. However, something is amiss. What do you all set your at? Should it be set at Zero?

toe-in, castor, camber affect each other. All should be checked.

A wider tire and/or different wheel offset also impacts wear. What tires and rims are you using?

I set all my cars at 0 camber. Give us a picture. It is probably too much toe in. Toe in wears the edge, camber will wear more across the tire but obviously the most at the edge. Caster wears similar to camber but it will be on both sides.

I will double check the tow-in. I try for 0 toe-in.

Go 1/8" toe in.. As you drive it will go towards zero!
