    Tires: Maxxis Bighorn MTs 265/75/16

    Anyone know what would cause every other lug on my front tires to wear more than the others? So, if you were to run your hand around the tire on the tread you would feel tall lug, short lug, tall lug, short lug, etc.

    Tires have around 1/3 of the tread depth left and the truck was purchased about 5000miles ago with the tires in this condition. Tires have not been rotated since purchase.

    Thanks,

    Could be alignment or a combination of a few things.

    Definitely an alignment issue, I'd make sure all your suspension components are tight before you get an alignment.

    If they are not rotated frequently, that can happen. Its called "Feathering", and happens to the outside edge of the front tires.

    Chris 4x4,

    What if the wear occurs on the inside rather than the outside?
