Hello ref the camber and inner tyre wear. You have suspension bushing issues.
Here's my situation for comparison....
Couple of months ago, I picked up my dream Gtv V6 - I looked for a long time and found one that had had a lot of the issues addressed that I knew to look for ie replacement of belts recently, q2 diff fitted etc etc. I looked for the infamous inner tyre wear issue but the seller had a very recent set of ditch finders fitted and the tyres looked good (albeit cheapo's).
500 miles later there is an alarming wha wha wha drone coming from the rear and lo and behold the insides of both rear tyres are buggered. So there are some seriously knackered bushings under there. The wheels do look visibly tilted inwards from bottom to top, almost like those cartoon images of sports cars seen on tasteless coffee mugs. This just goes to show how radically quickly a worn setup can destroy tyres. I think the use of wangli's only accelerated this rate of destruction.
To remedy this I am now going through the process of replacing all suspension parts with parts that I have reconditioned and fitted with a mixture of power flex bushes and lemforder spherical bushes. I'm not leaving anything to chance as I don't want to have this work done more than once, so am replacing absolutely everything, springs, shocks, links etc at the same time. Only once this is done will I fit new tyres.
Best of luck with it - it sounds like a nice spider you've got, so give her some rear end loving then treat her to some new rubber, so to speak.....,.
