Inner front tire tread wear - explain

could you explain why replacing a few bushings fixes the strut rubbing? is it because the rubbing is so minor that the collapsed/worn bushings make that much of a difference in spacing??

Things with nice sized tires do have close tolerances. The top of the strut is held in place by the strut bushing. It's a tire rub obviously as the strut is located inside the spring but keeping the geometry correct requires keeping the parts where they were designed to be.
