+1

your toe setting must be waaay off. Get alignment asap. Camber is not an issue unless it is -3.5+ but even then...

Did you get alignment after instal?

Is the OP a M3? If so, my e46 M3 would eat through rear tires every 6 months and that wasn't cheap....another reason to sell and get my AWD to split up that power to all 4 wheels instead of 2.

If we could see the tires wear, we may be able to piont OP in the right direction....Hopefully the tires are not directional and he put the wheels on the wrong side?

I find it hilarious that everyone who quoted have read this sentence entirely wrong.

Sounds like bad alignment to me... when was the last time you had that checked? Also, where is it running bald? Do you know your tire pressures? Most likely due to bad toe, though. No tires last this low mileage even if they are Nankangs or whatever...

The whole Time I have been saying I don't take the car to the track or do a lot of burnouts, somehow people misunderstood this, anyway it's not a 323i (it's a 325i) I don't even think those were ever available in the states.

I'm sorry to hurt your feelings dude but come on really I actually said no offense ( which I meant) And you still throw it back at me. Lol. I'm sorry I offended you and your 325i and carbon fiber hood

And after all the comments and help people said within your thread you quote my two comments and focus on the bullshit. When you should really be focusing on getting your toe in the proper specs which is therefor eating your fuckimg tires.

I would say alignment or rear subframe is bad. My buddy with his e46 m3 which is notorious for subframe issues was eating through tires like every 4k. He got lucky and dealer did it under the recall but he missed it by a few months but they took care of him.

You asked how long do they last? I've seen tires last 100k and some tires last 30-50k. MY RFT were shot at like 10k lol I beat them to death since i wanted new tires.

My father x5 E53 went through 3-4 sets of tires and hes at 240k on his SUV.

It's your car so do what you want to it. Most slammed and stretch-n-poke cars look funny and ridiculous. It doesn't matter whether Person X likes it or not. I don't think it looks bad and it is a nice machine and more reliable than any 335.

Back on topic - which tires do you have? Get an alignment done asap. How can you install coilovers and not get an alignment ... not very smart
