Default Odd tire wear

I was checking my brakes Saturday, and noticed what to me looks new/odd wear, it's only on front passenger. I've got no camber wear or any other wear except this.
Anyone seen this before or knows the cause?
I'm talking about that raised lip on outer edge, for people not sure what they're looking at.
Thanks
P.s I'm all over maintenance, so everything suspension related it relatively new, car is tick below 60k

No, just some daily sprited driving on my 70 mile round trip home, car loves corners, could that cause the wear?
There is one right hand on ramp I take daily, and at a near limit I should add.

I just got a new set of rear tires and the ones that got replaced looked similar to that. I was told it's the bushings.

Has nothing to do with rear wheels, and even if it did, bushings are either fine or have been replaced when I did my subframe reinforcement

What pressures are you running?

When was the last time you changed the tie rods?

30 psi
Tie rods replaced about 20k ago
I checked ball joints for play, they're all solid

Subscribed to see what the issue turns out to be. I haven't mounted my new tires yet because my car has the same issue, haven't had time to diagnose it yet. I'm at the same milage as you also.

Could it be the tire pressure? 30psi seems a bit low.
