2003 ION-2 Sedan
Default abnormal tire wear at inner shoulders

so, i checked the alignment. it's withing the range, but barely.
camber: front -1.6/-1.7 (should be -1+/-0.75); rear -1.7/-2.0 (should be -1.4+/-0.75)
toe: front 0.28 (should be under 0.30 IIRC); rear 0.21 (should be under 0.35 IIRC)
all in degrees.

would you realign with those values?

the camber is not adjustable, but aftermarkets bolts and shims are available at $8-10 a piece and it's not that hard according to the instructions.

fixed/replaced so far: side mirror, window trims x4, trunk floor, radiator bushing, alternator, starter, LCA x2, sway bar bushings x2, end links x2, timing chain tensioner, O2 sensor.
