I disagree. A more aggressive aligment will improve the steering feel in turns, slow or fast. Since all you'd really be changing is camber for a street based car, additional tire wear isn't a problem. Yeah, it will wear more on the inner edges, but your tires will still wear out in the middle before the inner edges do. The argument could also be made that the increased negative camber reduces outer edge wear.

If you want better initial bite and brake feel, get the Stoptech Street pads. More dusting, but well worth the improvments.
