tires pointed inward?

i just recently noticed that my front tires look like they are angled inwards at the bottom. you can notice it more the farther away you are. you can't really tell as much from the pictures as you can in person. it's nothing really noticeable or significant. i was just wondering if there is something wrong? if this is typical? if it's a big deal? why is it doing this and what to do about it? or am i just over analyzing my truck?

If you are lifted, without running aftermarket UCA's, they probably had to push the camber out a bit to get it to align close.

ok, i was wondering if my tire and wheel guy had left something off or done something wrong there. but i still have stock ucas and they are pretty close to my tires, but is it alright riding like this? i don't really off-road or anything.

also, when i get a wider wheel with lower backspacing (4.25), since it will put the wheel farther from the ucas, will that make my tires look like they are leaning anymore?

Positive camber is commonly used on vehicles that understeer (like 4wd trucks) because it makes steering easier. It will result in uneven tire wear though. Prefer my camber at zero and little heavier steering wheel.

anything that will help me with this besides ucas? i don't have the $450+ that it's gonna cost for those right now. would a wheel with lower backspacing help with this? since it will give more room between the wheel and ucas

Wheel back space wont affect the camber. You need different UCA's to fix it. OR..Have your alignment guy set Camber at 0*, and live with crap Caster.

I mean your caster will be around .6*, as opposed to the 2.0* or so that it needs to be set at.

Tires would "Look right", but the truck will wander. And thats if they can even get the Camber close to 0*
