Weird Baja claw wear..

anyone ever have any weird wear between the different lugs? My front tires wear a bit on the inside because of my t-bars, but the weird part is it isn't wearing the same on all the lugs. its like all the smaller ones are softer and wearing faster than the bigger ones that must be harder compound. Just thought id see if anyone has ever noticed this. its like a 1/4" size difference, but my rears are perfect so i'm just going to rotate my tires very often to keep them lasting. i should have done that sooner but oh well..

my for the day!

its called cupping... due to improper alignment, bad shocks, or improper inflation

yeah know what that is, but this case looks weird. I had even wear from thick to thin on my old tires(no cupping) so idk.


but it is about time i get it aligned again. I'm guessing what caused it was my bad wheel bearing i had. it had a decent amount of play in it, so i will watch it now and see what happens. Its that awesome time in my trucks life where all the lame things need replacing

Yeah thats cupping. Make sure you have them inflated properly too. Underinflation and bad alignment can do that. Dueler A/T's are esspecailly known for it. Pretty much every set that comes in at work has cupping on it. Cupping isnt always even it will have high and low points.
