Too many variables.

Before you start listing your params, no one here has a master spreadsheet of all possible combinations. Tire mfrs list cambers but they are worthless as they do not differentiate between strut and unequal length control arms.
You won't learn anything if you aren't sticking a temp probe into the tire. You can take some good guesses and might stumble on something that works but you'l never really know unless you do at least a little data gathering and testing. Or you can just say screw it, -3.0° and worry about other stuff.
Just start somewhere between -2.5 and -4.0° and take temps. Record G and lap times if you can.
