He is wrong, 0.04 IS NOT THE SPEC.

All I can thinks is with low pressure the sidewalls are 'rolling under' due to the toe in and you are getting outer edge wear. More pressure on the fronts should help. Do keep in mind that 'door jamb' numbers assume FULLY LOADED car. Do you drive if fully loaded? If only 1-2 people, inflate the tires to match. I actually will run more air up front for a big diesel with a 105lb driver. 36/34.

Its not horribly aggressive, but usually you see the front neutral and some camber at the back. You are past 50% front and rear. Not the end of the world,

If it rains where you are, just beware this can lead to hydroplane-induced oversteer. (all things being equal, when you begin to hydroplane, the rears- with less tread- may release first.) Just keep it in mind
