cupped tires??

I had a vibration in the frontof my 98 ranger 4x4 , thought it was that the tires needed balanced, got them bal and rotated now thw vib is in the back. The shop said the tires were "cupped" ? they still have good tread? Anybody heard of this? and if yes what the cause?

lack of rotation, worn or loose parts, mostly bad shocks.
