Help with camber!

I need inputs on how to set up my rear camber. I just slapped a set of tein basics with 1.75-2 in drop front and 1.25-1.5 in rear. I thought the stock wheels suddenly looked small so i put on a set of 18" axis widetracks with 40 offset all around and wrapped with 225/45 goodyears. After the install, everything fit well. No rubbing, no funny noises and i guess i cleared all calipers just fine. My question is, what would be the most appropriate camber set up? I'm looking for a conservative look-- back to stock settings or however straight i can get it without compromising function or performance. Right now, the rears probably are between -2-2.5 camber and the front, probably -1-1.5. I just want a clean set up with no rubbing issues. Thanks in advance!

Here are some pics i took:

set it to the height you want, then bring it to an alignment shop. i presume you have rear cambr kits already installed since your asking about camber settings. conservative drop front you'll be fine, but rear they'll need to be adjusted. the shop will fix it close to factory specs, 0 and -1.

thanks for the response... that's the basic coilover height i'm aiming for... i have yet to get it aligned and i just want to know what kind of camber kit i should bring to the alignment shop. should i have them set it up to -0.5-0.75? thanks

Not to jack this thread, but would I need a camber kit for my Accord? Maybe on the rear? It's on H-Techs and I don't wanna ruin my tires. :$

If I lower the front 3 inches, would I need a camber kit to alignment the fronts? or does the stock one do just fine? I normally see that the rears mainly need an aftermarket camber kit

I'm currently lowered about three inches and I left my front camber alone at -1.5. Granted, I also have a bit of an aggressive wheel and tire combo but I was surprised I didn't have worse camber at that height. All my other alignment settings are factory minus my camber settings.
