What are the allowable camber and toe specs for a 2000 Kia Sephia?

Mine is equal but a negative camber of .25 degree which is probably due to tie rod wear.

Mileage 81,000 manual trans base model.

This is a go to work car 30 mph and has been reliable as a rock.

Any help? I couldn't find any adjusters and am not familiar with this front end.
In the old days gone by I was always led to believe one degree as it helps with better cornering and reduces oversteer.

Are you having problems with tyre wear or handling? At 30 MPH, you shouldn't be having too much trouble. Quarter of a degree shouldn't cause much worry.

I've only had alignment done about once during the life of any of my cars. One car had obvious steering problems on delivery and this was fixed at the 1000km service. I've had other alignments done after minor accidents involving the wheels, and once after hitting an unexpected kerb (no problem found, thanks Nissan).

over 11 years on original tires.. they were worn out and aged. Over 80,00 miles and overdue..
The item in question, is there any adjustment and what are the recommended specs?
Rumor that Kia's do not come with camber adjusters.
Thanks..

Remarkable!. Not many cars have camber adjustment. Sorry, can't be specific about your model. Google?
