If your car is too low and your wheels are too big, then there really isn't much you can do. I'm not an expert, but if the alignment lift doesn't fit, then I think you're SOL. Your best bet is to buy a new set of 4 tires and make sure that your tire pressures are all equal. If your tires wore unevenly, that will definitely cause a pull in either direction. Check your tire pressures often and keep them equal.

Just to clarify your question, are they unable to pull your car on the rack since the clearance is too low or is the clearance to low for the car to be on the rack?

If you car is too low for it to get on the rack then get some two by six's, cut them at different lengths (start at about 4 feet, and the next three feet and so on) and the stack them to the height that would allow you to drive on the rack.

If your car is too low do just be on the rack, then you need to find a specialty shop that can handle your car. I would recommend this regardless due to their (implied) knowledge.

You want about -.6 to -1.0 degrees camber in the rear, about .10 toe in per side in the rear and about .05 toe in per side in the front. That's all the specs you need, take it to a shop that can deal with it. Did you not have an alignment after lowering? That would certainly explain the bad wear.

By the way you can do the alignment on the stock tires, putting on your big wheels won't affect it.
