Toe is more wear only on the inside...camber wear tapers. This is obviously based on proper inflation at all times.

I'd take it somewhere else and get a second opinion because something must be quite wrong to go through the tires at such a rate.

I completely agree. The guy is mistaken about there being no rear camber adjustment and has just cost you another couple hundred quid on replacing tyres prematurely plus more alignment sessions.  Check the toe reading also as negative/toe out can also wear the inner edge.

I've just got back from taking it elsewhere - both camber and toe were out at the rear, with toe being miles out apparently.

It looks like the first guy was just getting it wrong. It's surprising as he comes well recommended and is a Hunter machine - and even the guy I've been to today says that the first guy is somewhere he seends work here can't fit in and has sent friends to him in the past. Weird!

Oh well, should be sorted now! Looking forward to not replacing my rear tyres again in six months, haha.
