Default Allignment specs?

I am getting an allignment for my car on saturday and need some info on good allignment specs for a DAILY DRIVER car. I just installed coilovers and lowered it a pretty decent amount. I can post pics if that would help. But i just want minimal tire wear. Thanks

Be careful you are not too low. More than 30mm is very low.

It would help if we knew what suspension mods you have. You said coilovers, what kind, what else, etc. etc.?

For a stock suspension:

Maximum negative camber out front, both sides EVEN!!! This will be in the -1.5 range.

Zero toe all around.

They are megan racing track coilovers and im on 18" rims. The coilovers are my only suspension mod, the rear has some camber from being lowered and the car pulls to one side so i know i need one. Zero toe is the way to go then? And about -1 camber? I just bought new tires and really dont wanna wear through them

-2.0 or less camber should not cause excessive wear. Toe is what usually does.
