inside rear tires wore out

after i swapped out my summer wheels, i noticed that the inside was wearing out faster than the outside tires (rear). i haven't lowered my car, but i have noticed that E93s tend to sit lower due to the added weight of the hard top.

anyone know why i am having this kind of issue? should i take it to the dealer, or have another shop look at it?

help is appreciated!

check alignment
check for unbalanced air pressure

added weight of hardtop should NOT cause that.

I did alignment before summer started and I've also balanced the wheels 3 times....

stock sized tires? stock alignment?

only other thing you can try is to rotate tires more often. I used to run a lot of camber on my track car and had to rotate tires every 4-5k so that my tread weared down evenly. Weight should not have anything to do with it, cause that would mean "heavier" cars have uneven tread wear....

also check brake pads - aggresive braking/worn brake pads could possibly cause this as well....very rare

Have you had an alignment checked ? If the car is under warranty dealership should do it at no charge...

I think the local TO members are too kind to say that they've noticed that you've put on the pounds

Seriously...
If the wear is even all around then it is likely camber.
If it is uneven or "cupped" then it is likely toe-in

Have the dealer check.... I'm pretty sure it is not considered a "wear" item and should be covered.

i have 275 in the back and i notice my rear tires are wearing more on the inside wall also. I think its because of the H&R sports and having wide ass tires. Just have to rotate them every season to get the most life out of them.
