I have noticed that the outside portion of the tread on my left front tire (97 528, 15 inch wheels) is wearing down. thought I might need alignment, but looked at spare and noticed same wear on spare tire. (I bought the car used about 2K miles ago, now a total of 30K on car) assumed that previous owner switched out tire to make it seem only one was bad. my questions are these:
1.Does my car have an alignment problem or do all 5ers develop this problem after a while? I've heard both opinions
2. I am thinking about upgrading to 17in 528 sport wheels. Will I notice a huge difference in ride quality (comfort)? and.....
3.I have located two used wheels but am looking for another pair to finish my set. Anybody have 2 528 sport wheels for sale?
4. If I do not get the 17 inchers what brand of tire should I buy for the stock 15 inch wheels? the conti's suck like a white house intern.
