Are you referring to the camber and whether it is positive or negative?

Which direction are yours going in.

For best tire wear straight is ideal. For best traction under full power a little negative camber is better. The would be the top of the wheel and tire being angled in a tiny amount at the top of the wheel arch.

I never put a gauge on the wheels, but even I had alignment check twice on my W210, the tire wear out on inner sides about 2 mm more than on the other sides.
I got 53k miles on 50k rated tires, so not much to complain, but seems MB design their cars with better traction in mind - wearing the tire unevenly as a side effect.
As always in the life - can't have them both ways.
