Sometimes the tire can be moved on the wheel to help get rid of run out. You can balance a square block but it won't ride smooth.
I can probablly borrow a dial indicator from work, especially since I am QA Tech and have several at my disposal.

I just realized that I never mentioned what type of tires I had. They are GoodYear Eagle GT HRs.

One of the fastest ways to eliminate the tire from the equation, is to borrow or try a different set of tires. If it goes away, it in the tires. Then start looking at the drive shaft ect.
Also, if you can still find an (on car balancer) it will check the rotors at the same time.

I believe I found the cuprits. I was rotating the tires this weekend and when I grabbed the front tires i was jabbed in the hand by the steel belts sticking out of the inside shoulders on both tires. I am 99% sure that the excessive wear on the inside shoulders of the tires was caused by the -1.5* camber that I am running on the rear of the car. This negative camber is from the lowering springs that are installed on the car, and the fact that I never did install a camber kit on the rear because I wanted the impovement in handling. Now, I will admit that I do like the handling that the negative camber has given me, but I'm not to sure if it is worth it if it is going to be eating up tires like this. I might just have to get the camber kit and fix this so I'm not replacing tires every year. As for now, I'm going tomorrow morning to get 2 new Goodyear Eagle GT HRs at the cost of ~250 installed.
