Hi all

Had an interesting problem with my e60, 530d. Both of the front tyres (245/40 R18's) have worn very badly on the inside only, about 3 inches of the inside were bald.

The guy that changed them said that this was a common problem with run flats on a BMW's.

Any one else had or heard of this?

Regards

Alex

The early Dunlops had tire wear issues and were recalled.

What brand are yours?

To expand the story a bit.

I checked the tyres a few weeks back and they looked fine. Two days ago driving to work the drivers side tyre split due to the ware on the inside. I was quite surprised at this !!!! (The tyre has done about 18K)

Check out the Tire Noise thread stuck at the top of the forum. It might be of interest to you.
