Alignment that is inconsistent with your driving conditions can increase tire wear.

Incorrect toe setting can certainly wear the tires, but so can an increased negative camber setting which can be beneficial to handling.

A year ago I was comparing my car to a friends and found two things.. the turn-in and handling of his felt better at the track, and the inside shoulders of his fronts were gone in 12K miles.

His car had three times the negative camber that mine had on the front, but with his highway driving it did show a lot of inside wear. He has reset his to the factory specs and tire wear is slightly better.

I, on the other hand, don
