Joel and all the others who have helped,

I had the alignment checked soon after I bought the
car and it wasn't very far out of specs and was told
that the camber could not be adjusted, only centered.
It did not seem that far off, so I put new tires on
it. I rotated front-to-back 3 times every 5,000 miles.
They wore on the inside edge - especially the front.
At 15,000 miles I dismounted them and swapped them
side to side to move the inside edges to the outside.
Again, I rotate them front-to-back at 5000 miles. I
expect to get another 15,000 miles on these edges so a
total of 30,000 miles on a set of tires.

Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but I had expected more
miles out of a set of tires used for easy highway

Thanks for all the feedback,
