Could be that the tires previously experienced a bad alignment and started to wear badly which could be why they were changed out by the previous owner. Once the tires start to wear unevenly an alignment can't fix it.

I call BS. No chance those tires were 70% within the last 15 days unless:

A) you were doing burn outs
B) you drove 500 miles a day with absolutely horrible alignment
C) you drove 1000-1500 miles a day

As cposk mentioned, those tires were never 70%. I was already done when you bought them used.

I know it sounds hard to believe but ill post before pictures of the tires when i get home and you will see they had meat on them! Look at the picture i put up, you can see rubber just peeling and hanging there. I already had my drifting fun with my old tires on my 18" but HAVE NOT even touched the dsc button since i got the new wheels

So you got used tires and you are surprised they're "more used" a month later? I don't get it. From the new pics, they look perfectly fine to me.

they said that they "will fix the alignment but they are not responsible for the tires" they sell hankooks v12 for 100 each so i might just have to buy them ....the toe they put on my ///M is at least double of what my dads Aston Vantage has, its ridiculous

I'd almost have to say defective tires on that. Even the worst alignment shouldn't do that, unless you've driven a lot. How many miles are on them?
