Need tire help!

Hello all, I'm visiting family from Atlanta. When I arrived Thursday morning, I noticed my rear tires had really bad inner tread wear. I need to replace both of them. Can anyone in miami/ft. Lauderdale area recommend a good used tire shop? Any help you guys can give is appreciated. Thanks!

An alignment might be needed but I am pretty sure you probably have an e92 and not an e90 based on how your tire wore. The e92 has a lot of negative chamber in which it causes the inside of the tire to wear out a lot more than the outside. What tire sizes do you currently have.

Not necessarily. My E90 335 had negative chamber when I switched wheels a year ago. I was getting much more wear on the inside of the tire as well.

Very unhappy with them. They collapse under heavy cornering and braking and then only hook when warm. Excellent in wet though but mine are wearing quick.
