    I've heard modern power steering can affect the fronts, not noticed any such wera on my 17 inch tyres, and it's recently been serviced and MoT'd. Tyres been on since I had it, in Jan 2010, so if wearing unevenly I'd thought it would have been picked up, at least as an advisory. Maybe it's a feature with 19 inch?

    If the car's been lowered and not had a 4 wheel geometry check afterwards that will cause wear on the inner tyre edges.

    Get it properly four wheel aligned.

    Got mine 4-wheel aligned. Camber was out, causing inner rear tyre wear. Car is transformed and drived so much smoother too, and the steering wheen is centre now

    Worn upper control arm bushes will cause the wheel ,s to toe in and cause abnormal wear to the inside edge,s of tyre,s
    Jack the car up and grab the wheel at the 12 and 6 o clock position and see if there is any movement.
