Unusual tyre wear

967 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Patmark
I have noticed some strange wear on my front tryes.
The wear is in one section on both front tyres, its is a bit hard to see in the pics but both edges of the tread blocks are being rounded off.
The tyres are Goodyear Duratracs 265/75R16s and have done about 3000 Ks since new and where fitted to new 16x8 dynamic rims.

I put a new drag link on and got a wheel alignment the day after the tyres where fitted.
I have not noticed any strange vibrations and I have not locked up the brakes to cause a flat spot.

Taking the truck back to the tyre shop tomorrow to see if they can help

So any ideas?

That's odd. I've never seen that before.

I have gone through a set of Duratrac's. On my second set and have them on two vehicles. One is at 18,000 the other at 12,000 and all are wearing dead even and nicely. First set went to 72,000 km's.
