Your front end might need to be alligned or you need to get your tires balanced. Either of those can make your tires wear funny

You have excessive negative camber and or toe. Camber/caster plates or camber bolts and an alignment will clear it up.

Cut springs sound like the culprit to me. C/c plates are probably the answer

How is your ride? If you're happy with how it handles bumps and imperfections in the road then you just need to correct your front end alignment. Otherwise you may want new springs. Both toe and camber can affect tire wear greatly. With that said, you can save your self some cash and get some camber bolts for around $25 (american muscle has them) and an alignment should be from $60-$80. This will correct your tire wear problem.

Re: My tires in the front

Is your car lowered? If so and its lowered by cutting the springs then yes, definitely without a doubt replace your springs. If you want to lower the car do it right.

If its not lowered CC plates prob will not do anything for you. Have you hit/ ran over anything lately? Curbs, potholes, etc.?

Could be something simple like a tie rod end... Either way figure out the issue, then buy new tires and align the front end.

Agreed, bad alignment eats up tires and get the right springs, don't be cheap and cut them. If you lower, I recommend c/c plates as well because it will throw off camber and still eat tires

Yes. I know of a lot of people who have cut springs and are happy with the ride. In every day driving they should be fine. A proper set of springs like H&R would be preferable, especially if you drive aggressively or do any type of track days or auto x's. But as long as you're happy with the ride, all you need are camber bolts or plates and an alignment. Any shop should know what to do, but this is a good street alignment set up:

1degree of negative camber
caster: 4-5 degrees
and toe 0 degrees.

My pleasure. I have the Eibach camber bolts from American Muscle and they gave me plenty of adjustment for the set up I wanted. I'm running 1.5 degrees of negative camber and the car turns in so much better than stock spec camber which is around .5 degrees.
