Hi I'm a new member. I have a 218 series BMW Sport, which I purchased from new. It has done just 18000 miles. I just put it in for service and was informed that the two rear tyre were nearly illegal (2.4mm) and (1.9mm) This is only on the outer edges of the tyre. The rest of the tyres have plenty of tread. I have now checked the front tyres and again the tyres are well down on the outer edges.
Concerned about this wear I took it to a reputable tyre supplier where the guy there informed me that this is a regular problem with BMWs?? and Mercedes the tyres are laid slightly back at an angle which causes the uneven wear
The tyres fitted are Ridgestone 225/45 R17 91W run flat.
I've never heard of this before?? Anyone any ideas/comments please.
I am a steady driver and never put undue pressure on the tyres.
