    the shaking has nothing to do with alignment. and camber doesnt cause the tire to wear rapidly camber causes the tire to wear unevenly. toe being out of spec will cause the tire wear rapidly. but with that camber split your truck should be pulling left. camber pulls to the most positive side when your camber split is more then .5

    but all in all to answer your question your good man dont worry about your tires wearing out just keep rotating them
