    trd prerunner has the alloy rims i believe...
    went to rotate/balance and the tech. told/showed me the passenger front that was going to the rear was out of round & tire is wearing uneven.

    only 10,000 miles on the truck so it should be a warranty issue right?
    others have this same problem?:confused:

    depending on the tire itself, that may be all it is....an out of round tire, may not be the rim at all. did the tech show you or prove to you that the rim was " bent" for it to be out of round along with the tire. reason i say this is because the bfg rugged trails that came stock on my prerunner, right around 10k miles, wouldnt balance because they were way outta round, rims were ok though. just a thought.

    An out-of-round wheel will most likely cause vibrations......

    What type of tire wear are you getting?

    Is it cupping? Is it in the center? On the outside? Inside?

    did they give you different tires? stuck a little nub thing to the inside rim while it was on the machine but I couldn't see anything:confused:
    could see the tread of the tire was way out of round:mad:

    nah...i just ran those tires till they were done...which was right around 23k miles....then i got new shoes. some tires just get outta round easy as hell. you may want to try balancing the tires and see if it helps....maybe try to get them "roadforce" balanced, which may help your case.
