So I made a note of the tyre sizes and found something I think is odd...

Both the nearside tyres are 255/35/18
Both the offside tyres are 225/40/18

Aren't both the rear tyres supposed to be wider rather than having both the wider tyres on one side?

Would this make any difference to tyre wear as I still find it slightly odd that the offside front tyre is so badly worn and the nearside one isn't?

I might be completely wrong but if it makes a difference to the tyre wear then obviously that's an issue as I've only had the car since the end of February and the tyres were all checked and 3 of the 4 were fitted brand new when I collected it....

Maybe, maybe not, but I thought I'd ask
How bizarre!

The 255/35/18's should both be on the rear axle.
The 225/40/18's should be on the front.

It would probably explain the tyre wear.

Never argue with an idiot on the internet. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
