I have the same exact problem with my 2005 330i. I hit a curve and ever since then my rear passenger tire has been bent in wards and both rear tires have this uneven treading issue. I’ve taken it to many different alignment shops thinking that was my only issue and have been turned away (mainly I think because I’m female and not really sure what’s wrong 😂)However, after seeing this video I’m sure this is it. Is there any advice someone could give me on what type of place to go or what to say to a mechanic to make them understand what is going on?? Much appreciated and thanks for the video.

50sKid Great. Thank you for the reply.

All you need to do is tell them exactly what you told me -- you hit a curb and your rear tire is bent inwards and you've got uneven tread. That is a simple, visible problem that any mechanic worth his damn should be able to fix. There's a bent suspension component somewhere. A good shop will take your car and diagnose the problem and come back to you with an explanation of what is wrong and what it should cost to fix it.

50sKid (2 years ago)
I'd say it's a good bet, based on what I saw. Absolutely.

Well my trans has been in limp mode So i put my code reader to work and it came up p0705 and p0720 i know the p0705 is the output speed sensor but the other one is the range sensor or neutral safety switch i guess they call it im pretty sure its on the side of the trans where the big round plug in is but im not really sure on it
50sKid (3 years ago)
+michael smeriglio The output speed sensor is inside the case of the transmission. If you've seen my transmission rebuild, you will see that it is the black sensor that is just behind the valve body (not underneath it--that's the input speed sensor). It's the connector that I broke while trying to pull it apart. You can change it by simply removing the transmission pan and unscrewing the two bolts that hold it in. Careful while unplugging it, haha. I've never heard of a range sensor on this transmission. Why do you need to change these things? Give me the who/what/why.

I have this problem on my e46 ,but it's on the rear end. what parts should I replace or check out first ?
50sKid (3 years ago)
+david perez You know, I can't answer this question as I haven't seen the problem yet and been able to investigate, you know? But, remove your tire and inspect--you'll probably be able to see something out of whack. If you know that you didn't get in an accident, then I would think that maybe the rear trailing arm bushings have worn out, so check those.
After all those bimmer videos of yours, it seems to me that it's the perfect car for a masochist. No matter how much time and resources you put into fixing it, it keeps coming up with new issues just out of principle. Kudos for sticking with it, though. Hope you also get to enjoy driving it from time to time. Cheers from Germany, we love your pedantic approach;)

Gehmirnicht Aufdienuesse i have an e46 I’ve been rebuilding and Its a tough pill to swallow. They’re never really fixed even when they’re new because they’re simply designed bad. Known subframe issues, vanos problems, differential issues, there’s so many known fail points in bmws that it’s laughable. I love my car but it’s reallly depressing to have it throw a code almost every month
+50sKid I thought so. Any plans on doing performance mods, like supercharger or turbo?
50sKid (3 years ago)
+Gehmirnicht Aufdienuesse Well, kinda... some of these issues I'm doing just for the sake of making a video. But keep in mind, I bought this high mileage bmw because I wanted a project car. ;-)

Abnormal tire wear appears to be a common problem with the E46. In this case it looks like the strut was the culprit, but the control arm bushings, RTABs and so forth, also lead to issues. need to keep on top of maintenance to own these!

manual bimmer... best kind of bimmer

How can you adjust the camber on e46? I have minimum thread on the outside front tires. I need more negative camber.
50sKid (3 years ago)
+Vlad ZSX What he said. An alignment should only be about $40. Cheaper than a set of tires.
Ham94 (3 years ago)
+Vlad ZSX I think the camber is actually pre set. If you look at your front strut tower you will see a locating pin for the shocks. Check your tyre pressures, wheel bearings, front suspension bushes and components for wear/damage and get a wheel alignment.

Great vid, I had similar tyre wear on the front two tyres on my 330ci, thankfully I'd near enough replaced most of my suspension so it could only be the alignment. Seems some spanner monkey set the toe way out of spec so the wheels were pointing outwards at the front. Obligatory OMG look at my tyre wear pic below. Embarassed I didn't check the tyres often enough other than feeling for tread in the middle of the tyre but it's now on my bi-weekly check list. http://imgur.com/HlCMWYl
