Question problems with baulding with me tires

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 outside was not wearing out @ all. 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 i had them since 05.. 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 on the pvt message on here cause i'm about to get a new set of tires soon. P.S. some 1 told me it could that earlier models camber were set to high or some 1 missed with the spec's & must have to much negative camber to cause this problem. they should wear evenly they say. i dont realy know and where could i fix this problem?

Get an alignment after you got new tires. The fronts are supposed to have zero camber (dead center). The rears are set to -2 degree (negative camber). Sounds like you got excessive negative camber front and back!

Yeah, major alignment issue.

u guys think that could be the problem, or do think the beyren rims i go on there 8.5 front & the 10 rear with the 4.6 & 4.8 tires could cause the baulding as well?
