Right Rear tire wearing faster than rest?

Is the right rear the drive wheel?
The two rear tires are worn more than the front significantly.

The right rear is noticably more worn than the left rear.

Is this abnormal?

Same for me but I'm pretty sure I just need an alignment. As you probably do also. I also think it may be because the gas tank is on that side of the car.

The right rear tire is not slick yet but there are a something of the outside tread lines and the channel lines the run the circumference of tire. The left rear has a little more tread. The front two have a lot more trread.

I want to replace them all but the place j want to buy the tires are 900 miles away (out of town now).
Should/can I wait for a 900 mile trip?
Do tires blow out easily(om run flat?

Do I have en II enough traction with 2 good front tires, a ok to bad left rear and a bald right rear.

Dude what city, state, country do you live in?! 900 miles?! I can't see on my mobile but I highly recommend you order your parts from Discount Tire Direct or Tire Rack. They will be delivered within a week and probably cost at least 20% less than any tire shop will charge you. Then take your new tires to a local shop and have them mount and balance them for like 50 bucks.

No. The rears almost always wear faster than the fronts, especially on a sport package car. Often you have to replace the rears twice as much as the fronts. The Right rear wears more because of the open diff - gets more torque than the left due to their design.

The gas tank is in two pieces, under the back seat. It's not on one side or the other, but in the middle.

I live in Georgia. They have Discount Tire stores. Are they they same as discount tire direct?

I checked in past and most shops in my area charges $15-20 per tire.



Also I talked to a shop and they told me that they cannot install non run flats on BMWs because wheels are run flat only wheels???

No, Discount Tire is tires.com, they have local storefronts in much of the country.

Tire Rack is tirerack.com and is entirely mail-order/online.

Costco is very capable of selling and installing Bridgestone and Michelin tires (and some others.) There are many around Atlanta.

This is a flat out lie to sell you higher priced tires. Run from any shop that told you this garbage!
Discount Tire Direct and Tire Rack are online only.

Your alignment is off most likely. Do you have photos of the wear?

Also, don't waste your time or money going to a shop 900 miles from where you live. I'm SURE there is someone in your immediate area that is capable of switching your tires out. 900 miles for tires is absurd.

It's all the electronic nannies that cause the right rear to wear faster as well as the torque that goes to the right rear wheel. You might check your brake pads because they are probably wearing much faster than the fronts.
