If you push the car that camber is fine. It's toe that wears out tires.
I don’t really push the car I mostly drive to college and work. In occasion I will race but that’s all.

I bet that shop only did adjustments from under the car (like normal cars) and didn't touch the strut mount at all. You just need to tell them they need to loosen the strut mount and adjust front camber from under the hood.
Thank I will talk to the next aligment shop about it. Do I ask to them to open the strut mount to adjust the fron camber because I have after market camber plates?

With camber plates, you have to loosen the 3 nuts holding the whole strut in place. Just loosen them and slide the strut back and forth till you reach the desired camber.
Very easy to do but most alignment shops won't even think of doing this as your average car does not have camber plates. Hell, your average car doesn't even have front camber adjustment.

What are the cons of too much negative cambers beside wearing the tires out quicker?
