With regard to the speed of wear on the rear, how many miles are on the tires and what is the tread depth in 32nds of an inch?
Thanks for the follow up. I spoke directly with Continental tire today and they confirm that this would create uneven wear and cause them to wear faster than expected along with performance issues as well. In addition, he felt it was quite possible that the front tires would also be impact by uneven wear.
As for the depth I have less than 4/32 left and at this point I have 10,000 miles on the rear tires with uneven wear. Basically shot.
I am not following up with BMW to see what they will do to compensate me for this.
