Default Tire Wear Question

I took my car in to Big-O Tires this morning to get a slow leak fixed and my tires rotated, expecting that this would be the last rotation (Dunlop SP5000 Asym with 36K mi). The guys at Big-O said I was badly in need of a set of shoes as the inside of the fronts are completely bald. Sure enough, when I looked for myself, the insides of the fronts are just about to show the steel.

Why are the insides of the fronts so much more worn that the outside (I get them rotated every 3k-5k)? Could the camber be slightly off on my wheels?

So I am going to get the Pirrelli PZero Nero M+S this time. Any reason I should stick with the Dunlops?

Its definitely alignment. Toe-in, probably (as in not enough).
