Default Radial Tires Toe In

I hove recently heard that there is to be 0* toe in with Radial tires. I am wondering if some of you with radial experience could clarify this form me. I have set my toe-in at 1\16th as the radial tires are so expensive. THX

If it handles well and shows no unusual wear with 1/16" toe in, then I'd leave it.

I would worry about 0 toe either inducing a bit of instability or causing the steering not to self center

Tom and Woody: I did drive it today with 40# instead of 35# because I detected a very slight indication of wear on the outside AND the inside of both front tire treads. It still tracked we'll and the ride was not noticeably different. I will not change the toe-in unless I receive some solid information to do so from Coker (the manufacturer).
Also received some good advice and information on another forum.
