2015 Alignment Specs?

Hi,
Noticing some right outside tire wear. Left looks good. Under 18k on the clock and tires (Michelin) under 8k. I understand the factory specs are pretty broad, so worried the shop will say I'm in spec. Anyway, if someone has the ideal specs figured out, I'd love to hear it. All stock front suspension and under front axle cap (although not by much). Thanks.

do you rotate the tires?

the specs are pretty well what they've always been

toe .10 and .10 for a total of .20, caster is near 4.5 on both sides, and camber, i believe is supposed to be maybe .5 on both sides

Thanks. Nope, don't rotate, so the issue is clearly with the front right. Thanks for the specs. I do recall reading a while back that some run with zero toe on these, but not finding that now (on a phone, so not doing my best forum searching).

if you rotate, every 3-7k, you'll notice a lot less wear on the front tires

strait front axles are very, very hard on tires, especially if you tow with the truck, or have a camper like you do

and what sucks about the alcoas you have, is you have to break down the tires to properly rotate them

i'm gonna say you should just keep them rotated...though the toe may be out a bit, causing the one tire to feather...but on a set up like these are, where there's one bar connecting both knuckles, usually both tires feather from a toe issue

and if it's that the camber on that side is slightly out, there's not much to do to fix that, since the angle of the "C" at the end of the axle is what sets it

Thanks. Rotating is just not an option (diferent tires on front for pulling out of snow. Not changing rears until they're finished). Thanks.

Disregard. The specs I posted were not accurate.

Got the specs from the dealer. Good thing. Alignment shop didn't have the correct ones.

Toe on the right was .5" off. Nice.

I'll have to center the wheel as they never seem to get that right. At least it's easy (once it's not all snow and mud in my driveway). Shop didn't put one of the center caps on all the way. Nice surprise when i got home. Claim they're ordering a replacement for me. Uggh.
