tire problem

not sure if this is the right place to post this but here it goes.
i have a 94 coupe and i bought wheels and tires about 12000 kms ago and replaced one from a flat about 8000 ago. anways just wondering what would cause severe wear on the inner part of my tire. both of the fronts are severely worn away. one side more than the other (the newer one actually) its worn away so far that the belt is showing. i know it can be caused by alignment but i dont think that fast. i dont know if the size of them would effect the speed of the wear. they are 205/50/15. if it help i think my shocks are screwed. i have actually rotated them so the back ones are pretty worn as well. also if it helps or anyone knows of any defects they are hankook h405 tires. again thanks for the help i hope there isnt to much wrong.

I tore up a set of tires in one trip (it was on purpose cuz they were junky tires anyways).

A bad alignment (toe out) can destroy your tires in 500 kms.

wow, thats serious bad alignment. i'm -2.5 front camber and my old toyo proxes 4 lasted 3500km without even looking worn at all, maybe 2% gone when i sold em. thats gotta be major alignment issues. either way, i'd be going to an alignment shop first thing to so as not to murder your new tires too quick.

An alignment is waaaay cheaper than new tires

i just went to canadian tire for an alignment and they said that they wouldnt fix it and that wasnt adjustable, (dont know what that means?) they suggested that i go to a frame shop to check out measurements and what not. was just wondering if there are any more suggestions on what it may be before i take it in some where and they give me the run around charging me for stuff i dont need. could it possibly be a camber kit that will help or maybe new shocks cause i think they are pretty much shot. thanks for the help
