Unfortunately, if your brakes are of poor quality, as mine turned out to be, such a moderate toeing doesn't help one bit. Not until my brake pads had a 15-degree angle out, did the squealing become tolerable. After a few weeks, it quieted down considerably, but after an adjustment for a new wheel recently, they're back to their squealing selves, at least temporarily.
As it is now, only the front third of my pads are worn, because of the toeing.
