That's a lot lighter than I expected!
From my online research the solid axle ford's eat the outsides of the front tires. (mine is doing it too) The dually front ends do it worse as they have a larger scrub radius.Update on the 265/70R19.5 tires. The fronts are showing abnormal wear on the sides. I think it's a combination of not perfectly balanced plus they are mounted on wheels that are too narrow for them.
I discussed with my local tire store and we agreed that I should just to run even less pressure in the fronts. I have dropped from 70 to 60 and that is where I will start my trip. I do carry an infrared temp gauge and will watch my temps. I can always add air. Sure ride smoother at 60 psi!!
I have been running the rears at 60 and they appear to be wearing even.
True, however I have been told that the too narrow rim is creating an exception, by squeezing out the center, and should be taken into consideration when evaluating the tire wear.Too high of pressure should result in more wear in the center, not the edges.
Hang on, daylight?! And your still getting edge wear (where its not touching?). The pinch on them is definitely doing weird things.True, however I have been told that the too narrow rim is creating an exception, by squeezing out the center, and should be taken into consideration when evaluating the tire wear.
Fact is at 70 psi on a flat surface I could see daylight under the very edges of the tread, right where the wear is occuring.
Sigh, everything is a trade off.
