one side wore out other side good

I also have a 25 Safari 2007, and just wore out the tires on the curb side after 26,000 miles. Other side still good. Why would that be?

Most likely cause is lack of proper running gear balance.

Many owners today are install Centramatic balancers, which solves the problem.

When they work on semi's, they gotta work on an Airstream trailer.

Many owners speak very positive about them.

You might look how the tires are wearing. Your description above needs more details to give some possible solutions.

Might take that to an alignment shop and check that axle. Im guessin but it could be bent just a smidge. IT don't take much,just runnin over a curb just once could do it. IF thats a Dexter axle, I have also heard or saw someone mention that they had a 2007 or so, AS and the plates were welded in 1 in or so out of Square.which wore the tires out just like yours.There were some bad rubber in some of those axles,Andy can tell ya what the yrs the trailers were that had axles failures. I think the AS dealer in Texas replace a half dozen axles that were bad a couple of yrs ago.
Good Luck
Roger

Thanks for the replies. I replaced the two bad tires and put the other side's tires on the fronts. So, I guess I got (or will get) more than 25,000 miles, which doesn't seem too bad. In fact, I need to replace the driving tires now too. The rears' are pretty much gone on my OEM's Silverado. Fronts are ok. Rotated a year ago.
