Bad tire wear on 1 of 4 tires

So I have a 2014 Grey Wolf 21rr with around 2500 miles and the right rear China Bomb tire is showing serious signs of wear on the outside edge. All the other tires are wearing normally. Any ideas? I've sent pictures to my dealer, just waiting to hear back from them..... Hopefully the pics below show up... Order of the pictures are: right rear, right rear, right front, left rear, left front

May just be the picture, but your left rear appears to have some wear also. I would say the rear axle is out of alignment. Do you have torsion axles?

Answered my own question. Saw a spring in one of the pictures. Measure the diagonals of your front and rear mounting brackets and centers between wheels. Your diagonals should be within 3/8" or less (that's what Lippert deems acceptable), and your centerlines should be the same.

So It's been at camping world for 5 weeks now, they determined both axles are out of square (wow, took 5 weeks to determine that... Lol) they are talking with forest river to find out the way ahead. CW may not be able to replace/align the axles since they said they do not have the the right equipment?? Anybody know of a good trailer / axle shop in central Alabama?

Camping World is jerking your chain! It takes 15 minutes to measure and see if the axles are out of alignment. Find another dealer or trailer repair shop, you can also call FR and they can suggest a place to take it.

The axle company ( Lippert??) should provide dealer with a measurement guide. Are those tires Vail Sport bias tires?

Just as an update, the right side axle is 3/8" further back than the left side. Still waiting on Lippert to approve the warranty claim. Both axles/springs/hangers and all 4 tires will have to be replaced. Going on 8 weeks without a camper :thumbdown:

Same Problem, one tire out of four has bad wear.

I have a 2011 Sandpiper 5th wheel. Original set of tires. The right front tire has heavy wear on the outside edge. Does anyone know the warranty period on, I haven't checked yet but am assuming, lippert axles? Thanks.

I had same problem on a 2013 Wildcat last year. Rear axle was further back in right side. Hanger was welded too far back on frame. Ended up trading it, and sad part is dealer never fixed it. Got sold that way with same tires.
