Question 2018 Ram 2500 4WD Alignment

I have 22,000 miles on my 2018 2500 4wd & the front tires have excessive wear to the outside edges. It was re-aligned at 11,800 miles & toe setting going in was 0.20/-0.03, coming out it was set to factory spec of 0.10/0.10. I read somewhere the preferred setting is 0.00/0.00. With the LT285 65R20 tires costing over $300 each I need advise.

Thanks so much. After posting my question I went to You Tube & viewed a clip by Motor Head which lead me to the Thuren website & the info you suggested. I bought new rear tires last week, & now armed with the info obtained feel I good about replacing the front too & re-aligning to Thuren specs.

I have the 295-70-17's so mine are wide. I did a string alignment in the druveway and took out all the toe. Got lucky. Drives great with almost no front tire wear. Toe is best at 0.0000 zero.
