Alignment affected by strut brace?

I found some uneven tire wear on the insides of my steer tires. I noticed this after I installed my adjustable upper strut tower brace. I pretty much adjusted it as tight as it would go. Could this add-on cause a change in camber angle and produce the tire wear I found on the insides of the steer tires? I have since had it aligned, but the damage is done to the tires. It was time for some new ones anyways. I asked the shop that performed the alignment if my strut brace would constantly pull the tires out of alignment and they said no. Any thoughts on this?

A strut brace shouldn't cause a dramatic change in static camber. Maybe during hard corners but not during striaght lines. Just have it properly aligned and you should be right.
