    Installed new tires maybe 40-45k miles ago , alignment done . Started wearing out like this . Inflated to 110 , shocks not leaking , i believe its only inside tires . Month ago driver discovered improper truck height , adjusted ( he felt bit of vibration on lower gears ) , dont remember if those tires been wearing out before we did adjustment . Tires brand GENERAL . tires installed same time with other truck and other truck has 0 issues. Any ideas ?!

    Is this on a flatbed?

    or I should say a truck pulling a flatbed or something of the sort?

    If it's with a flatbed he probably had a winch above the tire an caught it while making a turn.

    It either rubbed on something or he spun on something.

    That's not from rubbing on a winch or spinning. For one it's to far in for a winch.
    I would say it's a ####ty tire coming apart.

    Yeah I know better also. But stuff happens. When it happened to me it wasn’t in different spots like that. It pretty much took out a whole section all the way around the tire. I wonder if , like was said above, it didn’t get chopped up by spinning on something. A sharp rock or a piece of steel?
     
    Coffey Thanks this.
