When I bought those tires from you, they had 51 pounds in them. I checked. These tires are one size smaller, 225/60-18. There were 235/60s on them when I got the rims from you, with 51 psi in them. You even told me they had 51 psi in them in a text message.
Do I have to draw this picture? I was always taught to inflate your tires for the wear they are showing. If the center wears too much, they're over-inflated. If the corners wear too much, they're under-inflated. The last set of tires I just took off were worn flat. All the tread bars were touching down across the entire tire. No excess corner wear. That tells me the inflation pressure is correct.
I should've taken a picture of them before getting rid of them. They just wore out too fast. As I said, I will have the alignment checked. It'll be a while because this is spring in Oklahoma, lots of rain in the forecast. Truck is under a cover in the garage for the foreseeable future. I put a few hundred miles on it this past weekend. Since I don't drive it much, it feels like a new vehicle every time I do.
The only thing I can come up with is that somehow, the toe-in/toe-out got out of whack. How I haven't a clue. I've never hit anything with the front tires that could've caused that to happen. If the tires are toe-out of in too much, they could be scrubbing off the tread. So, I'll have it checked. It just pisses me off that all the places around here demand you make an appointment, and then when you get there for the appointment, they tell you they have to keep it overnight, and it ends up sitting outside all night. GRRRRRR!!!!!
Agreed. You should inflate and what not based on what your tire wear is showing. Just odd that you are eating up fronts so quickly.
