Internal sides of the tires are worn

I am using 17" Yokohama C-drive tires for my vehicle.

From time to time, I found the internal sides of the front tires worn more than the outside sides & therefore shall replace them immediately, although the overall condition is not very bad.

Any help or suggestions ??

Tire rotation. Alignment. Is it only front wheels or all of them?

If this were the case, you would not be wearing the insides out prematurely. You need to have the toe in adjusted.

consider having your control arm bushigns checked. when those go out the inside of the wheels tend to wear prematurely. They will wear before the bushings have worn ou t enough to tell under normal driving conditions.

Not sure how the 5 series suspension is set up, but I would check the Control arm bushings and control arms for wear.

for 3 series under normal driving the bushings will last 50-100k based on the type of driving. (atleast from what i have read.)
