If you take hard corners, your front tires will wear at the outer edge.

Negative camber (normal) on the rears will cause your inner to wear a bit more than the outer edge.

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...

Inner or outer edge? The OEM RFTs are known to chew through the inside tread block, especially on the rears.

Pretty common for E90/E92 on stock wheels/tires for the there to be uneven wear. I see a lot of threads mentioning this.
