+camber for rear?

I was rotating my tires (side to side since they are staggered) and I noticed that both rear tires were wearing much more on the outside of the tires and not so much on the inside. Not excessive but you can sure notice the wear when looking at the tire off the car. I wished I took pics before remounting them. Wear on the outside half suggests positive camber correct? I had it aligned last year after my coilovers were installed. Drives straight. + camber does not sound right.

Toe is most likely the problem. Have the front and rear toe set to 0.

38PSI in the rear and mid 30's in the front...if I remember right. I don't have my Discount Tire receipts handy.

Never got a print out. I told the alignment shop to place it within factory specs for my 330i w/ sport suspension.

Without a print out we really can't help. Your Toe is more than likely the issue. But these cars also come with like -2 degrees from the factory so if your alignment shop adjusted that to less... that could be the issue too. I would say get another alignment and see if that fixes the problem.

Yeah, looking like that will be required.
