Garage List
2011 BMW 328i  [0.00]
My 06 325i with sports package did the same thing. Inside front wear on the potenza RE050a RFTs. Also outside cupping. This was at ~15k miles.

I'm probably going to have someone go over my front suspension when I put my winters on. Are there any typical worn components that would cause this kind of wear?

Four Wheel Alignment Complete

Thanks for all of the help! Went ahead with the alignment and the toe was definitely off. Brought the front toe and rear toe and camber back into spec. I've posted the report so people can compare the wear to the alignment.

Thanks again all!

Priority 1, thx for posting the results. Why did they not put the rear toe on both sides the same? 0.09" vs. 0.06".

Also, for the most part, they went with a setting that was in the middle of the BMW specifications, but for the rear toe they didn't. Do you know why?

I saw that when I looked it over before paying, and I have no idea why they weren't individually centered within the spec range. The total is centered within the range though, and that's probably what they shot for. Individually within the range with the total centered???
