Default Tires wearing wierd.

I've had about 10 sets of tires, I've seen some weird wear but these take the cake.

I just had them balanced and rotated and now I'm thinking that I either have an alignment problem or I have bushings that are complete junk.

Tires are Yokohama S4? All Seasons on 04 STI BBS.

Front tires are wearing (as a guess) about 5% more than the outsides (camber or toe I would guess) BUT 1.5" from the inside of tire there is a 1" wide patch all the way around the tire that is worn about 10% less than anywhere else on the tire. The outside 75% of the tire is worn very even from edge to the tall patch...

^^ Tires were on the rear.

Rear tires (were on the front) are good but the inside tread is cupping, like reverse of what you would think it would do. The leading edge of the tread block is raised. And the inside is worn a little more than the outside (same tread block that has the weird raised front edge)

^^ What would cause all of this nonsense? The rear suspension has never been touched, could worn bushings cause the 1" strip of unworn tread?

I'm going to take pictures as my above is hard to understand.

c/n: tires are wearing weird.
