My volvo has 48,000.I am on my second set of pirelli tires.There is cupping on the inside fronts.I thought I had rotated enough.Is a bent part possible or do I just need an alignment with a new set of tires? I doubt it was aligned after the first set of performance summers wore out

You will need to rotate the tires every 7,500 miles at a maximum, 5,000 miles is even better if your getting abnormal wear. The alignment must be checked and corrected if it's out of spec.

I have a 2006 Volvo XC90. The original set of tires were dangerous at 20,000 miles. Had to be replaced. We chose Pirelli again, silly mistake; this set has 17,000 and has to be replaced. Two sets of tires in about half the time that a good set of tires would last. Not at all impressed with Pirelli or with Volvo for not standing behind the tires.
