    So I noticed that my rears were getting really worn in the inner most inside inch of tread and were shot at 9000 miles. The remaining tread was 50% remaining in the rear tires. I had Tesla perform an alignment my car. The said I had a good amount of toe out on the rear resulting in inside tire wear. Of course they would not comp the alignment. I have not changed the tires since they are now wearing more evenly and have driven 2000 miles since the alignment.

    Before the alignment I was averaging 350 w/mi, 9000 miles
    reset trip meter and drove 2000 miles and that trip average is 342 w/mi, = 2% improvement.

    I have 20" wheels around staggered 245's front 275's rear.
    45 psi all around

    Thought you guys might find this interesting.


    P.S. I have an s85
