How long did your Dunlop Direzza Star Specs last?

after 12k miles my rears are showing metal tread on the inners
my last alignment says they are about -1.7 to -1.9 degrees for camber
so is this what to expect? or do i need another alignment

just curious to see how many miles people get on these tires
my fronts seem to be pretty good
fyi i have a 335 sedan stock

What is your toe? Negative camber does not necessarily give bad treadwear. As the combination of negative camber and lots of toe causes the tire to drag.

Ditto. Since the last time you checked your alignement about a year ago, it could have got knocked out of place relatively easy by then. Hitting pot holes, freeway interchanges, bumps, can cause your camber and toe to go out of wack. I would recommend getting it checked out again.
