This is for a relatively extreme case, by the way. I've had one of those - garbage tires made by Maxxis (never buy them unless they're bike tires!) that wore on all four edges only. They're horribly loud.

When I took the car to the dealership to get them aligned, they said they wouldn't be able to get it perfectly straight due to the weird wear pattern on all four tires.
...and this^ is so true. My buddy had a set of cheap tires on his car and I swear his volvo turned into a monster truck in terms of road noise.
