Rear tire wear

Hey guys, I got question for you experts. I just noticed that I got extreme tire wear on both of my rears on the inside only.
What will cause that?

most likely excess negative camber. Take it in to a reputable shop and have them check to ensure it is within spec (also make sure they use ballast)

Definitely toe wear. Time to take a trip to the alignment shop.

Wouldn't toe wear exhibit more scalloped look than that? It looks pretty linear. I am not saying you are wrong at all, you are more than likely right, but just want to know for my own edification.

That's definitely toe wear. If your toe was straight and you just had negative camber wear, it would look more like this.
