left side tires - more wear on the outside

'91 300E

I had 4 new Pirelli P6000 (195/65VR15) tires mounted and also got a 4-wheel alignment done at the same time.

17,000 miles later .....

The outside part of the left-side tires (driver's side) has more wear than the inside part of these tires. The right-side tires seemed to wear evenly ..... however, with that said, all 4 tires are already at 2/32

Do I have a (possible) problem with my struts or shocks or control arm? Please advice ........ Thanks!

I have a very low opinion of thatmodle; of tire and that brand of tire. They don't make any tires that aren't $300 that are worth a hoot.

From the sound of thing they have uniformly wore out in less than 20k. It speaks to the tire or the driver although you would have to be a very skillfull driver to use up tires evenly that fast (bg).
