Question Inside of tire eaten up.

I have a 93 honda civic. I lowered the car about 1.5 inches to 2 inches. I put a camber kit in the front and pushed it all the way positive to try and straighten the front wheels. I went threw 2 kumho 175/50r15 in about 3 months. one day i raced a honda up hill and lost the outer thread on the driver tire. So i just replaced both with 2 nexten 175/50r15. This time i was smart and didn't race up hill. I haven't even race since then. But now its been about 4 months and the inside of the driver tire is eaten up. Both sides cambers are positive the same way to straighten the tires. But for some reason. only one thread on the inside of the driver tire keeps getting eaten up. I got it flipped when i notice the inside was almost gone. But i want to know how i can fix this. Oh and i got an alignment before i put those 2 new tires in the front. I got new bushings on upper camber arms. New struds and lowering springs skunk 2. the front lower bushings are still in decent condition. My friend even lifted the car and check the wheels for any play in them. But didn't feel any play.... Oh and i have a new rack and pinion and new tie rods.

Do you have actual camber measurements on this? What is the toe set to?

It was measured when it was done and everything is even on both sides. The camber is as positive as possible. But it still looks a bit camber. And idk what the toe is set to But i know they are straight. I took it to another alignment shop. And they refused to do my alignment because they said it was straight...

Sounds like you need to have the alignment checked by a place that builds race cars, not an ordinary tire shop.

Your best bet may be to attend a local autocross and ask some of the experienced drivers who aligns their cars.
