Rear tire wear 2005 X5

Re: Rear tire wear 2005 X5

It seems like just a few months ago I replaced all tires and now I see the RETURN of the inside edge of each rear tire worn down to the belt. The outside edge has nearly 90% tread left.

The wear seems to be a bit uneven. I hear about the camber being an issue but this irregular pattern seems to indicate something else, but on both sides? I guess I should look at my bushings/control arms? Any thoughts about this tire wear. All 3 pictures are of the same tire.

I was ready to take to alignment shop and tell them to set the camber different to prevent this type of wear.

I had the same problem and took it for a four wheel alignment. The mechanic reset the camber and advised that BMW designed the truck for performance so you will see this type of wear. You have to rotate side to side in the rear which should help in more even wear. But the alignment if done correctly will help.
