Post back to the forum in 2 months time and I guarantee you the tires in the back will wear identical to the pictures you posted.

RTAB bushings may feel or look fine, but at that high mileage they definitely are not. I chewed up a brand new set of summer tires in 2 months with the same thinking.

Good luck!

They were able to correct 99% of the work and should help with tire wear.

Bushings were fine on the car, suspension will get replaced in a few weeks as the rear shocks are lightly leaking but it's not bad at all.

Now we are going to get new tires this week and the tire size we had on the 17" bmw rims before was 215/45/17

we were thinking of getting a thicker tires, maybe 225?

Would that be a bit better to do? more traction on the ground? If so, what tire thickness are we good to go with before we have issues with rubbing?
