Scalloped tire

Hi All, due to poor front end alignment one of the tires has a scalloped inside edge, had front end alignment and rotated tires , obviously the thumping is still the even the tread on the tire is still good , my question is can this edge be smoothed out to releave some of the thumping?

They used to true up tires by cutting them down slightly, I don't know if anyone still does that. The tire will somewhat correct itself the more miles you put on it.

Shops quit messing with tires, unless you can still find indy that believes, he may escape liability issues. No siping, no shaving, nothing. Country of litigation took its toll.
