History: After 5 (Oct 17) months the front driver side tyre was worn down on the inner shoulder/rib and the wires were showing. So I bought a new tyre (GoodYear brand) and had it fitted. After about a 13 months later (today) the tyre is completely worn on the inside ! I don't do a lot of miles I have only done about 2k+ miles using that tyre.
Somewhat similar to this image (this is from google but it looks close enough to my tyre on both ocassions).
The front passenger tyre was fine since Oct 17, and recently it has worn down a lot on the inside, the inner shoulder is worn down but the wires aren't showing yet.
Now, I'm going to fit two new tyres make sure they will be balanced and get tracking done. Just before finding out the front tyres are in this state I found out that the driver side wheel bearing is gone and the link arm could this have accelerated the wear on the tyre? - Of course this is assumed that those parts were broken for a while in order to do this. HOWEVER, that being said, this isn't the first time the front tyre has wear on the inside - oct 2017? And I don't think I spent 13 months with a broken wheel bearing or link arm
What is causing this, I don't want to keep buying new tyres :(
I also have another question, I overinflate my tyres, 50% of the time I have one passenger, and 50% im driving alone, and the manual reccomends that the tyres are 33 psi or something like that (just for example im giving numbers) and if you have 3 or more passengers then 38 so I just do 38 psi. Now I found out this can cause wear on the tyres I won't be doing this again, but according to this (see pic) overinflating causes the center to get worn not the shoulder. So I don't know how reliable this is as a source?

So I fitted the two new tyres and got the tracking done. The tracker was reading the driver side as toe out and the laser read it as 5 and the passenger side as toe out and at 6. The scale's maximum was 10 so mine was halfway to being completely misaligned. Now the driver side is 1 and the other side is -1, total 0 and the point is that they need to cancel each other see this video for more info Here is an image of my ACTUAL TYRE before changing it.
April 2019: Tyres still going strong!
Indeed it was the alignment causing all the issues!
