Too many commercials by Edgar. A comprehensive suspension/alignment inspection by a certified technician is the best decision. Only then can the parts or alignment be blamed. Remember when the Ford Escort first came out? You'd see one that looked like it was carring

Remember when the Ford Escort first came out? You'd see one that looked like it was carrying 3 tons, rear almost dragging the ground, yet it only had the driver. Excessive rear toe out pulled the tires outward and causing the suspension to load. Alignment by the dealer or certified technician cured the problem once 4 wheel alignment equipment was available.

What could be wrong with my tire if it bows in


Bows in at top or bottom? More than likely
you need your suspension aligned. The tire just follows the suspension. Misalignment can cause tire wear and handling problems. Front wheel drive cars need 4 wheel alignment to insure the back isn't steering the front. Other causes are shock/strut or control arm bushing wear or failure. Tie rod ends or idler arm wear can cause tire wear as well.
All parts should be tight and serviceable before alignment.

It sound like the Camber is off in the rear. Did you have an alignment done after the new struts wear installed?

Both back tires bowed


Most likely bad wheel bearings or struts (shocks). If you never replaced them, I would say the struts are bad causing the alignment problem ( toe or camber) to your wheels.

I dont think the sway bar will affect the tires at all, but i would suggest fixig it as it helps the car handle the road better.
