Hi
I’ve got an a200 amg 2015 plate. I bought it around May from a private seller. I had two new tyres put on and the tracking done. Also two suspension parts. Tyres were nearly bald on the outside.
2 Pirelli tyres and 4 wheel alignment. The car is still making a creaking noise when driving. Is it suspension?
Basically now 4K miles later and my tyres are back to nearly bald on the outside again?
Any advice? I dont know what to do next with it?

Suspension arm ball joints I think were done after the MOT on both sides. Took the garage 2 days to do them.

Wear on the outside is one of three things:
1. Hard cornering
2. Incorrect toe in (too much toe in)
3. Incorrect camber

Who did the 4 wheel tracking? I've had the wrong settings put on my car before now. My 1993 SL was set up with figures for a 2002 SL - completely different.

National tyres mate. Any advice on where you’d go from here?

Where in the country are you?
I'd get the alignment rechecked somewhere that know what they are doing.
The go to place for anything like this is Wheels in motion in Buckinghamshire.

I’m in South Wales. When I took the car there they said the tracking was way out.

In that case Steve @avantegarde near Bristol is your man. He's a Mercedes independent and knows his stuff and has hunter 4 wheel tracking.
If tyres are wearing out that fast there is still something not right with the tracking.
I believe he's still open during the Covid-19 epidemic but best give him a call.
