Question Euro alignment specs & procedure

Hello all! I will soon be replacing the tires on my car (most likely with Yoko AVS Sports, or Falken Azenis Sport) and would like to know if anyone out here has the correct factory alignment specs for Euro M Coupe. If there are some notes as to any specific procedure (such as a driver in place or not...) please feel free to share it with me and others.

My passenger rear tire has excessive inside wear and my driver side front also has excessive wear. I need to specs to make sure the tech does it properly and corrects for this uneven tire wear.

As usual, thanks to all of those who reply!

Gus

Skip the Yokos

Pat A on the Roadfly board runs the Azenis Sports and swears by them. Hes just LOVES them. He has used and HATES the Yoko AVS.


FYI: Id go with the Azenis

here is my reality

I do not know why he had such a bad experience with his AVS tires, but it could be. The Azenis is my second choice, as price is my primary factor. Here are the prices I have to pay for the tires here locally:

SO3 $1,352.40 - what else do you expect for that price!
Pilot Sport $1,325.10 - same as SO3
700Z $987.00 - no Assimetricos or other models avail locally
Azenis RS Sport (225/45 f, 245/45r) $816.27
Kumho 712 $783.09 - you get what you pay for
SP 9000 $743.40 - seems more GT than sporty
Proxes T1S $735.00 - light tires, so so reviews, 3rd choice for me
ContiSport $684.96 - good price, but no good comments on them
AVS Sport $661.50 - at this price, can I go wrong?

Other factors affecting my decision are wet weather traction (it rains 9 months out of the year down here, plus my car has no traction control! ) and given the prices, I would like them to last more than 10K miles. All, except for the Azenis, are 235/45 and 255/40. I have to pay about $250 to get them here, plus 20% duty, plus 5% tax!

The AVS look too good to be true, so I will run to the store tomorrow to make sure they are in fact the AVS Sport. If they are, that is what I will get, if not, then the Azenis
