So right now I have the 235 spare on it. Hopefully I can get some money for some new/used tires soon. Anyone have a set of 235/65R15 tires for sale cheap? lol

bad camber setting and the wrong tire pressure would cause that sloping

I have a full set of stock wheels and tires if you're interested. However, they'd have to be shipped at your expense! I'm just looking to get rid of them, so I'll make ya a deal! Right now they have 60% tread left on Dueler HT rubber.

Oh and by the way...that uneven wear and ballooning of the tire is from over-pressure and/or misalignment. Read your owners manual, dude.

They are General Ameritrac tires. Crappy traction in ANYTHING and horrible wear.

that wear could be a few things too small of a rim which if its a stock rim, and stock tire size you can rule that out or you are running too much air. It can be as simple as 5 pounds of air, I left my tires at 35 psi and there suppost to be at 30 and my center tred is at 4/32 and the shoulders have 7/32.
