    Has anyone had problems with inside tire wear? I just put new Nitto Grapplers on my truck not even 3 months ago and the inside of the tire is wearing out fast. Any ideas?

    You need an alignment. Your camber is off.

    Wow you guys are sssooooo smart. But heres the deal. I've built and re-built 4 different rock crawlers. Taken an old CJ added full size axels and dropped in a 350. Modified a VW bug into a 4x4 sand monster. And installed a track system on a 91 Bronco for deep snow in Alaska. Do you honestly think that I wouldn't consider the alignment? The camber is perfect and the alignment hasn't been this dead on since it rolled out of the factory.

    We have no idea what you have done or who you are. People have overlooked simpler things in the past.

    Wow, you must expect us to be fucking mind readers. I could really give a shit what you have done in the past and what you have done it too. Maybe if you would have had the forsight to mention you "know" the camber is perfect, you would not have to expect the most obvious answer.

    There is a huge knowledge base on this forum. Don't start off by pissing in the wheaties.

    Good, I don't care what the rest of you have done either. I'm sure some of you sit around jerking off to this stuff. But sure I'll play along.
    The camber is good. What other ideas might someone have? I've been thinking that possibly the frame could be tweaked. I ran a car fax report on it before buying it and it came up clear. But doesn't mean that the jerk that traded the truck in didn't mud run it and tweak the frame then notice the damage. Instead of fixing the problem he could have just traded it up.

    If you'd lay off the smart remarks you'll probably make friends faster..so to start over. Welcome to the site, sounds like we all have something in common..trucks and mud etc.

    How often have you rotated them? How wide is the tire and rim? Also, alignments can go bad right way after hitting a pothole to a trail, been there before..probably a good idea to get that checked again..that is why OP suggested the camber..very suspect to the indicated wear. Frame tweaked idea is a stretch, but if so your in for a whole bunch of other issues.

    Nice Douchebag. For someone who has done all of those things I would think you would know the basic causes of bad tire wear. I could go do the laundry list of things to check, but I am in a fuck-it kinda mood. Now if you will excuse me, I need to find my tissues.
