So I have noticed this time around of my tire rotation that the rear tire was cupping pretty badly on the inside when I ran my hand across it. Also have noticed the growling noise that would come with that. Took it to my local shop thinking maybe alignment is out and causing this. Below is the paperwork I got back, shop is saying alignment seems fine. Any thoughts to what else could be a miss here? It seems to be driver side only front and rear. I usually never rotate tires side to side. Don’t think it’s wheel bearing, turning left or right doesn’t make noise any better or worse, noise is defiantly from the cupped tire but before I buy new ones I’d like to not have this issue with a new set.

Worn shocks can cause cupping.

Car only has 40k miles, and it's an SI so they are electronic shocks, suspension is stiff like a tank.

40k miles on a 2018, dang. My 2017 just rolled past 30k recently. I'm still on two of the original tires (minor parking lot accident, managed to get wheel repair and two tires replaced :) ). Do you push the car hard in turns?
