Thing like what tyre you have one will have effects on how the car handles and ain't roll bar thickness etc ...

How important is tyre wear ? Best ringing and speaker to who's doing the job and discuss, Prodrive settings are a favourite for fast road.

The Prodrive settings are notorious for tyre wear. At the end of the day you can get the car's geometry set up perfectly and have all the "gucci parts" suspension in the world (I am speaking from experience here) but if you have crap tyres on then it won't make a blind bit of difference. My old car had everything in terms of suspension set up and fast road geometry, the let down was the Yokohama Parada Spec 2 tyres - great tyres for a dry track day, but the slightest damp on the road I might as well have had ice skates on the car. As soon as I changed all 4 tyres to Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 tyres it was a completely different animal in the dry and the wet - grip was astounding. Each to their own but I am not a fan of putting cheap budget tyres on a high powered performance car. There are the premium tyres like the Goodyears, Michelin Pilot Sport 3s, Briddestone Potenza, Pirelli, etc that whilst expensive, offer the best grip and performance and for me safety. Then you have the perfectly good mid range tyres such as the Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta & Vorti, Toyo T1Rs & T1s, Federal RSR, Avon ZZ3 and a few more - I haven't mentioned all the tyres and I am sure there are other perfectly good tyres out there in the mid range - but the low budget range tyres with obscure unheard of brand names should be avoided. Just my opinion.  Laughing

Alls I'm after is the best camber setting before I drive all the way to sideway dan so I don't rip the tyres to bits before I get there as the rear tyre is catching the arch and on turning a front is doing the same

It won't kill a tyre that much if it's out, the catching might though.

I run Bridgestone RE050s for road tyres as they were not too bad, sensibly priced too.

Front camber should be around 1.5 - 1.75 degree negative
Rear camber should be around the 1.00 - 1.25 degree negative.
These are good fast road settings without compromising tyre wear.
Set with no toe.
Been googling lol
