What is correct toe angle for 35s?

I had brief conversation on this elsewhere on the forum but it was in the middle of a different thread and I can't find the info anymore.

Does anyone know the correct toe (in degrees) to run with 35s? If I recall, the storck toe in should be about 1/8" but I don't know what angle that converts to with 35" in tires.

I asked my local alignment shop if they could set to based on distance (1/8" toe in) but they said I'd have to provide the degrees that I wanted.

Or is stock toe fine w/ 35s?

thanks

For running 35s, you want to use 1/16 toe in, which is equal to .13 degrees...

1/16" toe for 35" tires equal .1023degrees. 1/8" toe is .204degrees.

.16 - .20 should work out fine.

:ROFL:

Omg, I thought you were joking until I saw the screenshot.

I shudder to think what kinds of questions pop up on a minivan forum. Some things that spring to mind:
1) Where can I get the best price on mom jeans? (off-topic section)
2) Show us you your cheerleader/dance stickers!! (pic section)
3) Where can I pick up some headlight fluid? (tech section)

Lol.. The norm for older vehicles as far as questions.
A moderator owns a jeep TJ. He's on WF but infrequently.
