Front Struts 190E

Ok a simple question I rknow, but how do I tell if my front struts are toast? I'm getting uneven tire wear at the outer edge. I did the traditional bounce test and the car came right back. There is no leaking of the struts. I've ordered new tires tires and don't want to kill the new ones. I realize I need an alignment, and given the milage probably need the struts, but I don't want to spend $300.00 for new struts if not required. The car has about 95K on the clock.
Thanks in advance.
