Default uneven wear

My front tires are wearing on the inside of the tires, is this a wheel alignment problem or something else?

a bad alignment could be a cause but suspension component wear could be another (bad ball joints, wheel bearings, tie rod ends ect) how often do you rotate your tires?

everything pat and clinton said are most likly going to fix it, also be sure you arent running your tires to high of psi or to low, that can also have an effect on things

Thanks!!! I have brand new tires on it about 2months ago and they have the nitrogen in them so they supposed to keep the correct pressure? The front wheels do look like the angle outwards? I will get a wheel alignment done and check out the front shocks.
Thanks again for your reply's.
