when we bought this baby, it had very warn tires
about 2" on each inside walls
had Tacoma Subaru align it for me under warentee. Now I am going to put a set of Micheline Primacy MX4s on her and going to do the alignment again
so
I am wondering what is Ideal Alignment for her and what is the Factory Specs

I know it has + and - on it
but is there an Ideal that is practable for her or just the Factory specs

Thank you

Just get the toe set to 0, and dial in some negative camber up front.

You want as close to 0 toe all around as they can get (ideally you want it dead on, but no dealership is going to bother doing that good a job), and you want it even side to side.

For camber, something around -1 to -1.5 up front is good for a daily driver. Again you want it even side to side, as long as its not positive camber up front you should be good.

The rear has no camber adjustment stock so I wouldn't worry about it.

The "Factory" specs is a pretty wide range and even allows some positive camber, so I'd try to get something better than factory specs (or at least at the better end of the range).

I'd probably just get a printout of the alignment and see how it is before getting it adjusted, its most likely still the same as it was when you had it done last, no reason to get it done every time you change tires.
