Interesting that the rear toe specs changed from last year to this year (specs, not actual alignment)...

What's 0.05degrees in inches (or mm)? Math! How does it work?

Degrees and minutes really are the way to go for suspension angles.
Its 60 minutes to one degree.
Anyway the new set up looks better than last years (which had too much toe).
The turn-in should feel better and tyre wear should reduce.
You are running more camber than the stock spec but that shouldn't be a problem (excepting for slightly increased inner shoulder tyre wear).

Thanks for the reply bud. I was told the left rear wheel was off slightly.

What's up with the camber? Why is it on red? Can't they meet the min?

What does that cause? Should I be concerned?

Slightly accelerated tire wear on the inside shoulders.

Not at all....A lot of owners are quite happy to trade a little less tyre life for the benefit of running a little extra front negative camber - its only just outside the spec.
