E92 eaten front PS4s in less than 6k?!

Hi guys,
I have a e92 335i lowered with h+r springs, bilstein shocks, m3 control arms. I had the geometry set up late last year when I fitted 4 new Michelin Pilot Sport 4s tyres, I have covered roughly 6k miles and my front tyres are just above the wear marks on the inside edge, outside edge looks almost new. Any ideas why this would be?
Iíve searched online about different geo settings but no one has a definitive answer. I used a local specialist who have a really good reputation in track/race cars to do the alignment.
Any advice welcome
Thanks
Adam

Post up the alignment specs they set it to. Sounds like they set up the front end with toe out. That will kill the inside of the front tires.

Ideally, you want something like 2 to 4 minutes positive toe (toe in) per side, so a total of 4-8 minutes toe in.

Camber usually doesn't kill tyres, badly aligned toe does. Usually the problem is most alignment places are not setup to work out what the alignment should be based on aftermarket additions and normally just dial in e92 335 or e92 M3 settings when you are somewhere between the two and probably closer to m3. The M3 arms do give an extra degree of negative Camber compared to the 335i arms.

Toe is incorrect. My setup is very similar and get a lot more miles on a set of front tyres.
