tire issue

I have a 92 prelude si with 94000 original miles. When i bought the car 4 years ago it only had 33000 miles. I drive the car mostly highway miles to work 64 miles both ways. The problem i'm having is the tires are cupping. I bought a new set of falken ziex 912's & rotated every 6000 mile & they cupped bad. Took those off & put on a new set of toyo proxes 4, had them mounted on a road force machine, alignment checked which was perfect, & rotate every 3000 miles & still cupping. What's the deal ? The carfax checked clear & you can tell the car hasnt had any major body work. Any input ?

Re: tire issue

So, the alignment is perfect? No camber or caster issues?
