Shocks and Tires

I just introduced myself and my car on the General forum: see post

I do have a couple of perf/tech questions, so any help would be invaluable.

First off, my car's tires are ready for replacement. I'm leaning towards Bridgestone RE050 Pole Positions. Are this a good match for this car? Any alternatives y'all would suggest?

Second, shocks are OK but clearly getting soft. I'm thinking of replacing with Bilstein HDs. Keep in mind, I'm partial to the OEM ride and don't want to compromise it too much. Anyone have the Bilsteins? Happy with them? How about the Sports? Are they a bit stiff?

Finally, alignment settings. I will be getting a quality alignment at my local independent who will dial in any settings I desire from OEM specs to their own secret race setup. I don't want to go too wild, but would like a more aggressive setup. Any recommendations on camber, caster, toe front and rear?

Thanks in advance for the advice.
