Ok, it sounds like you are referring to toe-in. Toe in should be 0 to 0.10 degrees, which is roughly 1/8 to 1/10" difference between the rear and front of the tire. It is about impossible to get it perfect this way, hence alignment machines, but you can get it close enough to prevent severe tire wear
