Question Green wear bar?

Yesterday I was washing the truck and I noticed I had some green line going all the way around my tread near the outer area of the tire. Its showing all four tires. What the hell is it? I should still have several thousand miles left in the these Rugged Fails.

My camera battery is dead so I'll get a pic later. The tires got just over 30K miles on them.

I also know this truck has been used for towing before I bought it. I would think towing accelerates tire wear so that could also be a factor.

you may be getting close to the end of the tire life for those tires......not too sure really. pics will be able to tell a bit more. i know on the stock unrugged craps i had on my 06......them tires were shot at $23k......coulda drove maybe 5k more miles on them,but they were getting slick.........and this was rotating and balancing every 5k miles, plus they were ouitta round as hell.

I just checked, apparently I am closer to needing tires than I expected. Argh.

Don't tempt me.

I'm starting to think I should wait and save more money so I can get a TRD 4x4 .

If I'm reading this right the consensus is that because the tires are worn he needs to buy a new truck?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

He is wanting a 4x4 and a D-cab, so he's looking for any excuse.
FWIW, I bought my first Toyota 'cause my Nissan, at the time was low on fuel.
