Default 2002 neon R/T eating tires

Howdy all,

I have an 02 neon that eats tires on all 4 corners, but the left rear is the worst. I have had the car for 3 years, put 2 sets of tires on it, taken it to 4 different shops for alignments, and still have a problem. The car has never been in an accident. My trusted Mechanic says everything looks good under the car. I recently put new rims and tires on the car and want to get the most out of this set I can.
What could be the reason, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Left front, even for the most part.
right front, even
left rear, inside ware mostly, some out side.
right rear, inside

I know it sounds like tire pressure on left rear. But all 4 tires are at 35 psi.

If the fronts are wearing pretty evenly, but the backs are messed up, it sounds like something is off in the back, somewhere. Any suspension mods? Any noises while driving? The camber could be getting set at the alignment, and then starts to wander as you drive due to worn components. Happened on mine.
