New member with a 2004 C230

I bought it brand new in late 2003. I'm not sure if the avatar will work but if not it's black and in great condition with 61K miles on it. This is my first Mercedes but it won't be my last.

I was going to search for some answers but I figured I might ask here first. I have had two issues with my C230:

My tires wear out on the outside edges first and it happens on the LF first which seems odd to me. I can't rotate these b/c they are directional. Anyone have any ideas?

At low speeds there is a noise (a low rumble) that seems to come from the right front wheel. I thought it might be in the tire but I replaced them and it's still there. It almost sounds like a bad bearing or a stuck caliper but it isn't the caliper and I would be shocked if it was actually the bearing.
