My point was that street wear is normally a neglible consideration for a car that sees frequent track time (a weekend every 1-2 months). If you are putting a ton of highway miles on the tires between every event then you might want to look into less aggressive camber or having a street and track setting. If you are just driving around town, then I would just focus on the track settings.

Just my opinion. I do drive about 1500 miles per month on the street plus about 3 days at the track/mo. I drive my E46 with -3.0 camber up front. Above is what the tires looked like using my rotation schedule sans the tire flip.
