Spacers and camber wear

Do spacers increase inside tire camber wear?

I have 12.5mm Mach Schnell rear spacers and it appears that the camber wear has accelerated since putting on the spacers. I have staggered 162's with the stock RFT's.

No, spacers do not affect alignment angles. You need to get an alignment cause your toe is out of specs.

How often does rear toe go out of spec?

My inside camber wear is only on my rears and the tire wear is even right and left.

Did you alter ride height? if so the rears will toe IN. The front camber will not be affect as much as the rears but will still be off. Granted if youre at stock height and tend to spin the tires alot @ -1.5 rears you will have premature tire wear regardless

Rear toe generally can go out of spec by hitting a large pot hole or interchange on the freeway, unless you have altered your ride height.
