tire wear question, HLP PLZ
« on: Apr 09, 2008, 12:29:40 PM »
both of my front tires are wearing diagonally from left to right. the very outsides of the tires are nearly bald while the insides are like 70%. ive had these tires on for about 1300 miles, they are dunlop radial mud rovers. truck is an 88' and i do have a front locker but this still seems wierd. anyone help please as to what is causing this.

Your camber is off.

Take it to an alignment shop and get it aligned.

As stated above that is an alignment issue.  You have too much toe-in.  Get an alignment or do it yourself.

Well I would agree on the alignment  then ask if you cranked up the torsion bars?

alignment buddy, but they wont align it if your idler arm, ball-joints, or bushings are shot.... as it will only throw the alignment back off.
make sure those are fixed.
