I installed Swift lowering springs and e46 m3 zcp wheels w/mss in May (tires were almost new). I had the car realigned immediately after. Today I noticed that I have very bad inside tread wear on my rear passenger tire. I also noticed that the front passenger is also starting to wear on the inside edge. I stopped by the shop that completed the alignment and they said I most likely hit a pothole that threw the alignment out. I'm skeptical of that.

Based on the results below, would these alignment specs cause edge wear like this? I've owned a few e46 m3s and I'm familiar with camber wear from back rtabs but I was unaware that e92 suffer from a similar problem. All the suspension parts are tight even though I'm at ~90k.

I'm gonna have this shop check the alignment again but I don't want to put on new tires and go through the same thing in 3 months.

Here's before and after. They weren't a performance shop, so no camber adjustments on the coil overs. I'm very low but it's strange that the rear left camber is at -3.4*. Assuming that negative camber is contributing to my car pulling slightly to the left on the road. Thoughts?
