Weird Tire Wear

My tires are worn right in the middle. They are inflated at 32 PSI all around. The rears are fine. The fronts Have the wear. The inner is worn every other lug and some are raised. Would that be a balance issue. Just happened after i got all this work done so????

They are cupping need a rotation.And you need a alignment thats why the tread is thicker on the outside of the tire.

That doesnt happen overnight. I would say if your truck is aligned now and with all the new parts its fine.

since had a bunch of maintenance done, you'll probably have to wait and see if it's still doing it. if you get new tires keep an eye on it. I think you should've covered anything that would cause that.
