Tires wearing on inside??

Hey guys I've noticed on the last two sets of tires I've replaced they were all wearing on the first 3 to 4 inches of the inside of the tire. Do I have camber issues or just need to rotate more often?

Rotating can't hurt, but if you have not had your alignment checked in a few years then I would certainly suggest doing so.

I would definitely recommend get an alignment check to make sure it is within spec. Having bad Camber and Toe can wear your tires rather quickly.

Of course have your alignment checked, but keep in mind that the e46 loves to wear out tires. The inside of my tires wear faster than the outside, it's been that way since I bought the car, and the alignment is to factory spec.
