I needed snow tires and I have nice 17" rims that I didn't want to ruin from the winter so I bought these. Should I be concerned that two of the tires are worn more on the inner edges? I assume they were from the rear. Should I put those two tires that are worn more in the front of my 1998 528i this winter? Free shipping, was $600.00 total for Borbet Type H 16" rims with Blizzak tires used one season.

here they are:

The fact that they are worn unevenly most likely means the tracking was out on the car they came off - as long as there is still plenty of tread I wouldn't worry about it.
