Exclamation very bad tyre wear

hello everyone,
as you can see from my garage i fitted a set of 18" about 7 weeks ago and i had all the tracking and suspension set up at bmw which cost 150 but for some reason the rear tyres are bold i dont drive crazy aas i have a baby in the car but i would like to know if anyone has this problem with bigger wheels.
bmw say that they are too big for the car but wheelbase say that the wheels are the max i can go so that the cars geomatry stay's the same?
i dont really want to put the old 15" on but i cant afford new tyres every 7 weeks i have seen lots of bmw's with big wheels on surley not everyone is having to buy new tyres evry 7 weeks?

fast cars and fast love, put some love into your car.

where is it wearing? i suggest maybe camber correction plates and an alignment (which i recommend doing every time you change your rims, or every year)
