so i put the eibachs on myself a long time ago and didnt bother with the camber adjustment and just 2 days ago i saw this....


i knew my tires were getting bald but geezus im glad i saw it wen i did and didnt get a blow out....

so should i call Michelin and try to get them under warrenty or just replace them with some Yokahamas.

either way i need to adjust that camber....so should i bring it to someone or can i do it myself.....

I know it's a whole different setup but in the 9-5, shimming the hubs is the common remedy for neg. camber.

You aren't going to have any luck getting those tires replaced under warranty unfortunately.

A shim is a small thin plate similar to a washer that goes under the bolt connecting to the upper part of the hub which pushes the hub out slightly at the top, evening camber.

Honestly I don't know if a shim will even work with your car. There is a factory shim for the 9-5 that is .3mm I believe. I don't see why a washer wouldnt work just as well. Finding one that thin with a large enough hole might be tricky. It might need more than .3mm if the car is lowered however. I'm just speculating at this point.

first thing you should do after putting on lowering springs should be get an alignment.

I also have the same issue with my eubach lowering springs.
I got a set of tires for free last summer that i used to test and see if i need an alignement, and i had the same tire wear as you. Then i got my alignment froma place that does lowered cars, and not its fine.
Just letting you know

An alignment should definately be done. Try to find a performance shop like Trex that will align a lowered car. Many normal places won't do it. If the negative camber is visible after installation, ask them specifically to try and work with the camber.
