Having issues with rear tire wear on a 06 G6 Sedan with 82K on it. Seeing heavy inside wear on the rear tires almost like the shocks where going out and not able to support the rear. The wear starts with the tread bumping up then over time wears as if the alignment was out. Fixing to buy new tires and want this issue fixed before putting them on. I saw this issue when I replaced the tires the first time and thought it was just the stock tire causing the issue.

Just checking you guys out from time to time and came across your thread on rear tire wear. My 2008 2LT malibu seems to have the same issue with it's rear passenger tire wearing on it's outside edge (feathering). all tires are inflated properly and i rotate them every 3000 miles. the car has just under 17000 on it.
I suspect the alignment has been out from day one from the factory. I plan on having a lifetime four wheel alignment done on it very soon and recommend you have it checked and done as well.

Yeah--I am thinking that this is just another thing that GM screwed up on with the production of there cars. Seems the same issues appear in several models of cars from the same time frame.

I am suspecting the shocks are in need of replacement or the springs where never strong enough to support the rear weight or the car. I am going to start with an alignment check and go from there.
