It would probably take a suspension expert like a road-race shop to accurately guess how a lowered set-up would need to be tuned to maximize dynamic handling characteristics through changing the static alignment settings, based on what you are looking for.

No idea how it would need to change - but to avoid excessive tire wear and for a DD, I'd start with OEM settings or close to it. Then go from there.
i.e. car feels dull/numb on turn-in, decrease front camber; or if it feels unstable, then increase toe a little. etc.
