Wondering if Leaf owners have witnessed uneven tire wear on front tires, especially the driver side front?

I have notice accelerated wear on the outside of the front tires yes. My alignment is okay and since I don't drive my Leaf like a race car I'm thinking it must be the stock tires. My employer has the same car as mine and his is doing the same thing.

Does anyone have suggestions for better replacement tires than the stock ones or their Leaf?

Ian, what kind of and size of tires were your originals?

Mine are Michelin Energy Savers P215x50/R17.

There are about 31,000 km on the vehicle.

My front drivers side tire has only 2-3 mm, while the Passenger side is 5 mm and both back are 6 mm.  This indicates an alignment issue so I am having an alignment done this week.

Mine are the Bridgestone Ecopia P205/55R16 which I believe are the original tires and I have 50K on my 2013 Leaf.

A word of caution: My employer just replaced the tires on his 2013 Leaf at 55K with a set of non LRR tires. He says his range dropped by almost 20K/charge and he wishes he had gone with the LRRs.
