TT tire wear issues

We got back from our trip today and while cleaning up I noticed a bubble on my sidewall. I went ahead and put the spare on and noticed some strange tire ware. Anyone help me out on what would be causing this

Let me guess, factory bias ply tires. Mine wore like that till I went to a radial tire.

Wear on inside is indicative of either loose bearings, bent spindles or bent axles.

I once had the inside wear due to excessive turning while backing into a campground spot. This mostly was on concrete and asphalt during the regular camping season. Although excessive once a patterned of wear is established it will forever stay.

It is my understanding if you wore one on the inside you should of had one with excessive wear on the outside of the other. I agree that once a wear pattern is established, it's there for the remainder of life of the tire unless you have them "trued".

The axle looks straight, it's hard to tell if the wheels are pigeon

IF, you have springs, there should be an upward bow in the center of the axles. If you have torsion axles, you should be able to use a carpenters square and tell if they are leaning in at the top.
