About the only way you can go wrong is if you measure from different points on the sidewalls (letters etc. make it a less than good surface), or use staggered lugs for the measurements.
It may take a couple of tries to get it just right since you don't have swivel plates to put the tires on, but rolling the pickup forward a few inches serves pretty much the same purpose.
I like clamping something straight to the rotors, then measuring at about 20 inches fore and aft of axle center.

That's most likely feathering, not cupping, and equally likely caused by too much toe-in. Set it to zero and see what happens.
A camber adjustment isn't really possible on a live axle, so you might as well go for the cheap and simple fix.

Well the other day (as some of you know) I ran my finger across the outer thread pattern and inner pattern of the front tires. Notices some heavy wear on the outer tread of the tires.
Cupping was very obvious on both front tires.
Truck has 2800 miles on it and its the Firestones but that said firestones or not, that's too early for them too be cupping even if they are a less than decent tire.
Ill bring it to the alignment shop in the next few weeks and get my toe set as well as my caster and camber and then throw some new NITTOs on it. Ditch these before the mild winter comes out way haha.

My initial impression is they balanced well as they are smooth as glass on the highway. No road noise and my only initial critique is they are either running to much air (65 psi) making them harder ie.. rides feels a bit bumpier or the tread design is causing the slightly different ride.
Quick question, I know in my gen 4 the tech could adjust tire sizes in the computer “ with MINIMAL optional sizes”. I went one size up to a 285/65/20 so my speed will be off about 2mph at 60mph. Does anyone know if we can adjust these gen 5s tire size?
Not that we buy these trucks for the mpg but with that being off it affects range shown on fuel and I use that on trip planning as to where I stop for fuel. Not a big deal just curious really.
