Default Wheel Alignment Settings

Currently, my car setup is set to

Front: -2
Rear: -1.5

But since I moved to California and I drive a lot of highway, I was thinking to change my alignment to

Front: -1.5
Rear: -1

I am not sure if this change will affect much and if i should keep my current settings OR change to the one that I mentioned aboved OR if you recommend me other settings.

im pretty sure hes referring to camber.

your current settings are fine. a friend was running more than that on his L wagon, daily driver, and the tire wear wasnt bad at all.

i would just leave it as long as ur running 0 toe.
