Wor Tires

I have 1989 For Escort. I am getting ready to take it to be inspected and want to prepare myself for expenses. I had just bought new tires around 6 months ago. Both front tires are wearing on the inner edges. What should I suspect? I also noticed that if you look at the front tires from a distance, one tire seems to look straight ad the other seems to be turned out a little(not tilted, but as if the tire beining turned to turn around a corner). I thought it looked like this last year also, but when I took it to be inspected there were no problems. Could it just be a wheel alignment? Thanks!

That is absolutely your problem. If the wearing is only on the innner edge of the tire then yes, one or both tires are aimed out a little. If you had new tires six months ago, and they didn't tell you to have your wheels aligned when they put them on, either try and get them to fix it for you, or never shop there again!! That is a pretty basic thing when you get new tires.
