Rear tire wear

Hi guys, i just so happened to look at my rear tires and I have horrible camber wear... This does not make sense because i have a 2011 and it's a solid rear axle. My tires are shot because the insides of both the left and right are worn smooth with wires now showing. If you guys have any ideas of what is going on I would appreciate it.

Were they properly inflated and rotated?

They are a staggered set up and yes they were properly inflated

Are you sure those tires didn't come from the front?
Are you the original owner?

Is the vehicle lowered, and does it have a panhard bar or any means of correcting the alignment if it is lowered? That is very strange indeed...

What size tires on what size rims? Maybe a little stretch would cause the shoulder to wear first?

Very odd and with a staggered set up it rules out those being on the front at one point. Are you the first owner and did you put the current set up on the car? Almost seems impossible. Over and under inflated tires will cause either middle or BOTH edges to wear so I don't see how that is relevant.

Some tires have a stiffer sidewall on one side of the tire. Improper inflation on these can cause increased wear on one side of the same tire.

They are 285 super sports. The only thing I can think of is that my lower control arms bushing is worn out

Although they're not adjustable for camber and toe (not easily that is) you should have the rear checked for alignment.
