Hey guys about to toe in my jeep after putting the zone 4.25" on it. I have 35" goodyear mtrs and I am wondering what the best toe in measurement is? I have heard 5/32 toe in is the right measurement for 35s? So 5/32 is the same at 2.5/16 correct?

I'm not sure if this is the right place for me to ask;
But does anyone want to take a crack at dumbing-down all of this? Maybe explain the question and answer it to me like I'm 5 yrs old. Or with puppets? Ha

Imagine Toe-in like someone who is pigeon toed. Where the toes are pointing inward and the heels are further apart than the toes. For our jeeps, you want the same concept. You want the forward of the tire/rotor (depending how you align) 1/16" - 1/8" less than the aft of the tire/rotor. This helps with tracking straight. Here's an alignment write-up I borrowed from Water Dog.

That's making more sense.
And the tie rod is how one adjusts this, correct?
I'm not planning on doing this myself anytime soon, but I would like to give it a shot at least once.
Maybe just before I get forced to get my jeep professionally aligned in Hawaii lol

Yes the tie-rod is what adjusts/sets the toe-in. Once you have done this yourself the first time and find out just how easy it is to get it right, you'll never pay another alignment shop for a toe-in adjustment again. I can set my toe-in before I could get half-way to my nearest alignment shop 4-5 miles away.

Awesome, I've read a few how-to's on how easy TJs are to align yourself. Anxious to try it for myself!

But Hawaii safety inspection requires a professional alignment shop receipt :\
Hopefully only once... But we'll see
