I've been through 2 sets of rear tires in a year. The inner portion of tire keeps going bald fast. Any thoughts on what could be causing this issue ?

Also the front driver side has done the same thing.








Any information would help

A proper alignment to your advised ordered numbers.

Been aligned a few times. Is there any thing that may be causing alignment to go bad so fast causing this issue?

Also no I'm not using spacers. OEM Rims and Tire sizes on front and rear.

No, there is alignment and there is ***8216;alignment***8217;. How do you know that anything was done at your first paid-for alignment, or that the mechanic did not pencil-whip you?

Study your car***8217;s allowable ***8220;in spec***8221; alignment numbers and their effects on driveability and tire wear. Decide what you want. Discuss the numbers with trusted advisors. Go to the alignment mechanic and tell him to align your car in accordance with BMW published (www.NewTIS.info) procedures to these - your - numbers. If you don***8217;t trust him, if he pencil-whipped you, then get an alignment check before you ruin another set of tires.

Salesmen are not trusted advisors, one does not pay a trusted advisor except a lawyer (then he is bound by canons of ethics).

Mechanical or electrical problems can hypothetically cause tire wear problems
