Terrible rubbing in the rear popped my 3 month old tires...

Alright guys, so in late February I replaced all 4 tires on my coupe with brand new Yokohama all seasons because of the unpredictable weather here in Virginia. In the beginning of may i popped my front tire on a DC pothole. Since i kept the old set of tires, I just switched it out with an old tire. Not even two weeks later I pop a rear tire at 90mph on 495. Luckily the tire stayed on the rim and i was able to safely get off the road even after some asshole in a Cadillac wouldn't let me get over for a 1/4 mile. Again, I switch it out with an old tire, thinking that it must've been another road hazard that caused it to pop. Since i bought the tires from tirerack I have a warranty on them that covers road hazard. However i noticed the inside tread of the tire was chewed up but i figured that must've happened from riding it at 90mph. Just my luck not even a week later at about 45mph my other rear tire (passenger) pops. This time i noticed this tire has almost identical inner tire tread wear as the other one. I read on the forums here that the factory camber causes uneven wear on the rear tires, but i haven't seen any this bad. As far as i know, the suspension is oem. I also noticed that my rear has dropped probably a good 1/2inch since I've bought the car. The rear tires actually tuck under the fender a bit. I can't lie, when i first bought the car I was hitting mean potholes once a week. My question for you guys is, before i spend $200 for someone to tell me what to replace, do any of you guys have an idea what might be wrong with my suspension? I'm guessing springs/shocks...
Ps I'm trying to post pictures but they're too large

Alignment is out. Camber is off. May also need new shocks/struts

Could be several things:

1. Older stock of new tires, which would be susceptible to tire rot

2. Wheels (rims) that are out of spec, causing friction

3. Mismatch of tires to wheels

4. Extreme camber and I do mean extreme, to effect 3 month old tires

5. Over inflation

From the pics the alignment looks way off. Tire pressure should be 33psi. Check your struts too. Looks like someone or something happens to make it squat real low.

My tires did this after having my normal shop(not used to BMW's) do the alignment. Take it to a dealer and get an alignment, your tires will last much longer.
