My Passat GLX (FWD) only has 29,000 miles on it, and i've noticed my tires starting to feather around the outside edges only. I've only become real concerned resently because I'm beginning to feel a slight shimmy in my steering wheel now. Could this be caused my the unusual tire wear, or some other problem in the suspension? Whats causing this tire wear? I thought maybe hard cornering causes this, but i've never really "beat" on my car, and don't take my turns all that fast. It also tends to follow the "slope" of the road rather badly too, whether it slopes towards the inside or outside. Either way, I can't take my hands off the wheel because the car never tracks straight ahead. I don't know if its and alignment issue, or if this is just normal for passats.
