Right front tire wearing

My right front tire is wearing out on the outside and the wear has been dramatic. I pay close attention to my tires and last night during set up the tires looked fine. We were camped at a BLM campground in Montana and had to drive out on a gravel road door about 15 miles....some of the road had some pretty bad wash boarding. 168 miles later after checking the tires I noticed the outside tread was almost worn down to "smooth" . Pressure in all for tires are good, weight in the trailer for this trip ( 13,000 + miles) has been the same and cargo evenly distributed.

Any idea on cause, could it be a broken belt from the wash boarding?

Thanks, john

My first thought is damaged tire. I would also check the wheel bearing tightness. I would try a different tire first and watch it closely for wear.

Check bearings NOW! With tire off the ground see if you can feel any "rocking" in the wheel. Compare to one that isnt wearing like that one. You can do that where you get tire replaced.

Thanks guys. Went to a local tire shop and checked the bearings...seem to be ok. Decided to put one of my spares on and have driven 200+ miles today and all ok. Hopefully it was a broken belt but will continue to watch and have inspected when we get to Jackson Center.

Mine did that - the end of the axle was bent upwards - tire was at a slight upwards angle - it must be 90 degrees - if it were a car you would get an alignment - with a AS you get new axle. Look down the AS and see if both rims are straight to each other. I checked with a level and one (the one that wore) was not at 90 degrees.

We had similar tire wear. Jackson Center did an alignment for us before our trip to Colorado. No visible off-side wearing about 6,000 miles later. AND, the AS seems to pull easier, too. YMMV, of course.
