    well i have a 2010 Reg Cab 4 banger taco.

    stock Dunflop tires and i am at 15k miles

    i checked my tires last night and they are wearing pretty hard on the middle of the tire. I rotate them just fine and even had my alignment checked at toyota and they said it was ok!

    my Tire pressure was a bit low and i bumped it up to 33 PSI

    anyone else getting this kind of tire wear?

    If they are wearing in the middle ghat usually means too high of psi. Do the chalk line test. The stock tires are junk anyway.

    That kind of wear comes from over inflated tires.

    33 psi doesn't seem enough to do that....Imuna go with POS Dunflops. Underinflated would wear both edges.

    yeah exactly and with the Tire pressure being at 28 before (2 psi below stock) it should have worn on the outside edges instead of the middle so i think it must just be these crappy tires
