Last week I found that the BFGs that I had put on the car about a year ago where down to the wear bar. On top of that I found that the tire had very heavy wear on the inside of the tire on both sides. I noticed this same wear on the Continentals that came on the car but didnt think much of it being the tires where crap. Went to get new tires today and was going to get an alignment. The guy at the shop said there was no way to adjust for the inner wear on the car. Is there no adjustment for camber by using the strut?
I have new tires and dont want them to wear like the last set did in a year.

Bring it to a new spot.

There are some hard physical mods that can be done in some situations, not all.

My stock tires were also worn down on the inside because of negative camber on my fronts like yours. Best thing to do is to watch the miles on your tires and rotate them after so long

What kind of miles are you putting on them? What kind of driving conditions are they subjected to?
Not a problem for me to put over 25,000 mile on a set of tires in a year but that is mostly interstate. If you are driving on concrete (cruising the burbs) that will almost cut a third of the life out. For sure having the car alligned will help, and even going to a specialty shop to have the back tires checked will add to that, just remember how and where you drive matter too.

I put probally 16K on the car in about the 11 months that the tires where on the car. Driving mostly in the country where the roads are blacktop except for highway miles. I was going to have it aligned and the place I went to do nothing but 4 wheel alignments. I looked before I put the tires back on to see if there was any adjustment using the stuts but doesnt look like it. A buddy said to look for camber bolts that take the place of the stock bolts. Said this will give some adjustment in the camber.

I've got the same issue. I rotate every 3K. Second set of tires.
I took it to an alignment specialist I use for all my cars...he could not get the rear to come into spec. When he lifted on the rear bumper slightly it came into spec on the computer screen. Almost as if the springs are too soft in the rear! The specs for the rear are -1.3...mine sit at -1.6 left and -1.7 right. That's running the adjustment as far as possible!

Haven't been able to find a stiffer spring for the car (05 GT).

Also noticed the car seems to step out on a bump with those settings.
