Unhappy problems with tires balding on x5

i like to know if any 1 out there has this problem.. first off i have a 2000 x5 4.4 and i notice how my tires were shreding from the insides all 4 of them and the rear got the worst end of it. i did an alignment twice. i had the 4.6 set which is 9.5 & 10.5 rims size with some toyo tires that are 275/40 front & 315/35 rear.. but for now i have the beyren wheels which are smeller than the 4.6 and they there 8.5 front & 10 in the rear with the same tires. some people say its a problem with the first modles with the x5 but they told to found out on here. so if any 1 knows about this please hit me up cause i'm about to get a new set of tires thank you

We were told that camber was very high on earlier X5, which would cause your issues. Maybe someone has changed alignment specs to compenasate and could comment ?
