Your problem is most likely caused by worn struts not just being out of alignment. Having said that Your best choice is to go to a discount shop like Walmart and spend the $50. Or you can get a basic alignment set from harbor freight and still spend the $50 and take four hours of time to do it. Or you can get 4 pieces of 2" x 2" alum angle that are 10' long. Clamp one to each of your wheels using bar clamps. Then measure the difference in angle front to back. First get all four tires to run parallel to each other. Then set the fronts wheels to be toed in about 3/8" toward front center each side. This is a down and dirty rough way to do it but the car will drive straight. Like I said earlier your problem is most likely much more than just an alignment and if so then you won't be able to adjust it far enough to get it all back online. Good luck and hope this helps.

Tire wear 2011 hyundai elantra


take the car to a suspension specialist shop and have the rear wheels aligned first
have the suspension checked for worn mounts or bad springs
it is very important that the rear end is aligned before the front end
suspect that the suspension rubbers need replacing as it is over 6 years old
the tyre rotation is a myth perpetrated on drivers to sell tyres
when the tyre construction was cross-ply and not radials yes rotation then on cross-ply tyres could get the wear to even out but with radials once the wear is started then the tyre continually wears in that pattern regardless of which wheel it is on
even if you take that tyre of the car and put it on a trailer , it will still continue to wear in that pattern
tyres are no longer rotated but simply put front to back on the same side other wise the belts flex in a new direction in the tread and fail earlier that expected
besides that fact that tyre rotation will not allow you to monitor for suspension problems or wheel alignment problems and cost you 4 tyres at a time instead of two

My front tires are showing wear, and they toe out when in reverse


Be sure to have tires rotated every 5000-6000-miles. Walmart is good for that.
Outside wear is normal for fronts from the turns at higher speeds.
When tierod ends were replaced it is advisable to get front end aligned. Its not impossible to replace with minimum change but if settings were done with worn parts, new parts will change it.

Rear tire wear


Sounds like your alignment is out, take it and get it balanced, If not that then something has broken in the rear end causing your tire to wear wrong
