Unhappy Inside of rear tires trashed! Is that normal??

Run flats, went flat today (well no pressure)

Both rears on the inside edge wore right throught to the metal!

Tires were getting down, and I knew next year I had to replace (snows where going on this weekend)

So wondering if this is normal wear on the 535??

I'm guessing the alignment is way out.

It is normal for the inside of the rear tires to wear out faster than the outside. BMW sets the rears at an agressive camber to get the great handling they have.

Since I don't track it, or autocross it. I'll have the alignment adjusted for better wear.

Whats ironic, my Corvette C5 is factory spec, and really set up for handling, but wears the tires perfect (that really surprised me!)

I do not think it is normal unless somebody messed with your alignment. My 09 535i with 29000 plus miles still on original runflats and it wears even in the rears and fronts also. I had an alignment around 15000 at the dealer to factory specs. By the way I can hardly wait to replace the RFT's. Cheers!
