My Conti DW wore only the 1st inner tread block smooth on the fronts - rest of the tire has good tread yet.

My car has been aligned by dealer 2X in the years I have owned it - once at beginning of year right before I switched from my winters to the DW's.

It does not have the Sport suspension, nor is it lowered, and I have the alignment specs printout before/after from each alignment that was done. All after specs are within acceptable range - yet still the odd wear.

When I complained to the dealer, of course they stated there is nothing you can do, that due to the alignment BMW uses to enable the handling - this wear is normal?

I don't see this wear on my winter tires - but they are still on factory 17" wheels, whereas my summer tires are on 18" staggered setup with wider tires than what came with car...
