Alignment numbers, now that I got camber plates

Getting camber plates installed on my E90 M3 before my next VIR outing in August.

Now that I'll be able to dial in more camber, what numbers for camber/caster/toe do you all suggest for VIR (or any track for that matter).

Thanks.

P.S. Running Pilot Super Sports with Ohlins R&T / BBS CH-R 19"

Are you on stock suspension? I ran -2.5 front and -1.9 rear and needed more with street tire and stock suspension. Couldn't keep the tire from rolling over. I would suggest between 2.5 and 3.0 fron and close to 2 rear. Depends how street unfriendly you want to be.

Garage List
I run -1.6 on the street and -2.4 on the track. I have to adjust toe back and forth at the same time. There are 6 flat spots on the tie rod for using an open end wrench for adjustment. I turn them in 2.5 flats when i increase camber and then turn them back out when I am done on the track. I think I can get closer to -3.0 but my wear is pretty even at this point.

I have -2.5 on the front, max castor at that camber, zero toe (I might add a little next alignment) and factory max -2.0 at the back with 1/32 each side toe in. I got these off the board as a good compromise. So far, running an H&R front sway bar with Eibach springs and Hankook R-S3's 275/35/18 I have had very even wear across with tread for 6 track days (3 @ VIR) (swapping front and rear wheels between days)

Add you going to add a little toe out or toe in upfront?

Sorry, toe in to settle the car in day-to-day highway cruising a bit more.
