It's better to get pads with the domed washers so you don't have to continually bend your brake-caliper arms as the pads wear in. Aside from weakening the aluminium, when you put in new pads, you'll end up with a huge 1/4" gap at the rear. There was a post with a picture like that somewhere... Bending back
aluminium in the opposite direction that much will certainly snap it.
The easier and less damaging way to get toe-in is just to sand off a little of the rear of the pad. About 2-3 seconds on a grinder is all that's needed. If you look at a lot of performance racecar brake-pads like Pagids, you'll see that it has this bevel pre-cut into the pads.
