The drivers side rear axle tire is wearing out the inside tread much faster than the other tires. Looking at the tire, it would appear that it is toed out compared to the one in front of it which is wearing evenly. I'm assuming that the axle is bent or not made properly. How long is the warranty on this type of trouble? I seem to remember that the frame and axle is a 5 year warranty, is that correct? It's a 2011 CF305SKP purchased in April of 2011.

Thanks, Gary

Gary..That's the same tire and wear pattern I had. I thought that it was out of alignment as well and had it checked and all was reportedly OK. I bought new tires and went to a higher load rating tire (E) and the wear stopped. I assume it is because that is a heavy area of the rig (for me) and the tires were slightly overloaded (they were the orig LR D tires). new tires wearing good with 8-10K miles on them.

Interesting because when I replaced the OEM tires on my trailer last month the drivers side rear tire was wearing on the inside. All 4 were replaced because one of the tires had tread separation and I didn't want them on there when we started a trip(just finished 2900 miles).

Where did you take your trailer to have the alignment checked? My local Crossroads dealer says that they don't do it!

Thanks, Gary

Gary, I went to a local truck repair business. Most dealers send this kind of thing out to another business.

Can a malfunctioning brake (hanging) cause this type of wear..just asking. I've been told that the new electric brake systems wiring (gauge thinner to save cost and weight) can affect brake pressure and performance.

I have a similar problem on my ST26BH. Except my wear is passenger side, rear axle, on the outside edge of the tire. It's the only tire showing uneven wear. I'm really puzzled, no noticeable difference in alignment of the tire, and all are properly inflated. Any suggestions?

Adam...

You probably cannot see an out of alignment axle unless it is REAL bad......Try swapping the front and rear tires on the right side and see if the problem moves or not. If the swapped tire in the rear starts to wear then I would say have your axle checked.
