    Has anyone else noticed excessive tire wear on your X-RUNNER,have had to put new set on about once every year. They wear even but always wear out by about 10,000 to 18,000 miles per set. my current set is supposed to have 60,000 mile life span, i'm about to hit 20,000 on them and there bald already. 4 sets in 5 yrs have tried nitro got same wear as normal air.

    Its normal if you drive the truck like it otta be driven. Had mine 3 years and on my 3rd set (well 4 not counting the 1's that were on it when I got it ,but they were already trashed !! )
    1st set were Falken zeons
    2nd set Good Year Eagles
    3rd set BFGoodrich KDW's
    KDW's seem to be holding up pretty good. Dont grip on the turns like the Eagles but they were an all season tire

    If you drive it like a race car, then wearing out tires prematurely is all part of the consequences of having fun.

    Get your wallet out and keep buying yourself new ones.
