In his case, it probably isn't his alignment, more likely the tire rolling over, driving technique can reduce most of it, but that would mean backing off a little bit and knowing the limits of the tire. I'm not sure what his skill level is so i dont want to offend him, but my 'guess' would be that the car had to have been 'pushing' (understeering) quiet a bit to do this damage, but without being in the car it's hard to say for sure. Maybe it would be good to have an instructor observe him and provide suggestions.
