Wheel Offset and tire wear

Postby bios2k » Mon Feb 13, 2017 7:38 pm


I have a big question here.
I have a EX37 and 2 wheel set, 1 is original wheel and other is after market wheels (summer)

My question is my summer tire wear in the inner. i mean the interior side of the tire is wearing faster then the rest of the tire. now my summer tire is about 4/32 and the inner side (edge) is almost no thread left and this is on all 4 tires
My car is perfectly aligned to car specs, and I just done another aligment at dealer and all is in specs

The only thing I can figure is that my summer wheel is offset 40 and my OEM wheel is offset 47.
both set are 19''x8''

does 7mm offset difference can make that problem to my tire,

My winter tire mounted on my OEM wheel are perfect, wear is perfectly equal on all 4
