Default Wheel alignment specs needed for 2007 2.0 li

I rotated my tires today and noticed the fronts were wearing more on the outside shoulders. Rears were fine. I'm getting the wheel alignment checked next week. Can anyone give me the front and rear alignment specs? I've looked in the manual but I can't find 'em. BTW I've kept the tires at 31 psi.

if you adjust the rear toe in at the amount specified, bye bye your rear tire really fast! And forget about road handling during winter on ice. Since 2 years now I have the rear toe in set at 0, as suggested by my kia dealer after many investigation, tries and error.

Great advice on the toe in, guys. It just goes to say that the manual is not always right. In real life, experience can be more or a teacher.
