Hi Scotty,
Inner part of the tyres are wearing out faster than the outer part of the tyres.. I had alignment done about a year ago. Happens with the front and rear tyres. Should I change my alignment shop? Inner part of rear tyres wear out faster as it is a rear wheel drive.

You should get a printout of the alignment that shows the specs of where the toe, camber and caster are adjusted to. Each car model has a spec for each of these variables that you have to hit so the tires wear evenly. My alignment shop let me walk out last spring 2017 with it still not in spec, telling me that camber is not adjustable in the rear of a 2000 Honda Civic. I found out that is true by researching it and that the solution was an aftermarket adjustable upper control arm or shims, (Moog) had them install the shim and realign it (Tires Plus, once you pay for it they have to check and/or realign for 12 months) That solved it, the camber was in spec, the tires are wearing evenly!

How would I know if the alignment has been done correctly in the first place? Can't trust the alignment shop :(

I am using 235/45/17 tyres instead of 245/45/17(this is the recommended). Would this make any difference? Really hard to find that particular size(245/45/17)

they don't always leak, often they just wear out and stop absorbing shocks and make tires wear bad

Thank you. I checked the struts but cant see anything leaking.

yes, and find out what is really wrong (like worn struts causing that.)
