Default Front Tires Wearing Out After Lowering Car Need Help Plz

Well I lowered my car about 6 months ago and got the car realigned as soon as it was lowered and i noticed today the inside of my tires are being eaten. A mechanic told me to get a camber kit and that would solve the problem, but i would like to get some recommendations of which camber kits are good. or if there is anything else i could do to fix this. so i wont have to be buying new from tires every 3-6 months. any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Looks like a sportline kit. Any idea what it's aligned to?

I've run -1.7 camber for the last year (20k miles) and just a slight amount of toe out and mine still have rubber on them (and I'm running those same Fuzion tires). I'm going to bet that your toe is "out" and needs adjusted to about 0 toe or 1/16 inch of toe in. I'm guessing you have considerable toe out and being that low will give you extra negative camber (not as much as I run though). Lots of negative camber and extreme toe angles will do that in a hurry. That's my best guess.
