asdf, how many miles did you get out of your star specs?
Like 12-13k before one tire starting cupping and showing wire. Replaced a pair with 2 new star specs, the original pair i'm still driving on. maybe 2k miles at most left on those. not the greatest lol

For a 140 treadwear rating 20k miles is pretty solid

So they both have the same treadwear so wouldn't they ideally have the same issue? both would need replaced by about 20k miles or so...

That's weird because the Falkens and the s.drives are rated at 300. Everyone says the s.drives cup or get camber bumps at like 10k

By "cupped" do you mean one side wore vastly more than the other? I truly wouldn't want that to happen to my tires, but i plan on running the absolute least amount of camber possible. I will not be flush or low just need traction!!!!

Look where there is gaps on the heavy wear and wires are showing near the inner sidewall. That is where it cupped. They are like bubbles, with an inch gap in between the next.
