alignment - degree to inches

Some background -
i get my alignments at a local sears where i know the guys.
I run 315/70/17 MTZ's on 17 inch procomps

Now the point of this forum
They can only set alignment based on degrees, and since i run 315's i want my toe in set to 1/8 of an inch in.

Can anyone tell me what i should tell them so i get the proper alignment im looking for?

thank you
Jason LaGross

Have them set it to 0* equal both sides they you get out your tape and adjust it for whatever toe you want.

The factory toe in should be 0.09* to 0.12*... so Jadmt is in the right direction... larger tire=more drag so you have to have more static toe-in to get to a dynamic toe-in of 0* going down the road.

Just an FYI, if I've done the rough math correctly, .19 of toe is .1125" on 17" wheels...about .006" short on each side for a full 1/8".
How exact does it have to be?
