Front tyre wear inside edge on 156 V6 Veloce

The front tyres on my car are quite badly worn just on the inside 50mm. To the point that I will need to replace them for the MOT (as cords are starting to show). The bushes and wishbones are all in A1 cond with no play at all so I assume it must be the tracking so I will get that done at same time. This does not surprise me as we have potholes around here big enough to loose that whole car in! Just out of interest does this mean the wheels are toe out or toe in to course this type of wear.Im guessing toe out and that, combined with the neg camber causes it.

The fronts are probably set to toe-out.
The Sportpack/Veloce settings were changed from the original 2mm toe-out to 0mm toe-out in mid 1999, but many were never set correctly (or at all) at PDI.
Then add to that many tyre chains not using the "Sport" settings and people still have issues over 11-years after the revised settings came out...

In comparison, mine was correctly set before I collected it in December 1999 and has always been fine.
