Could also be bearings are loose


Have you checked to make sure the axle nuts are tight enough for no play but loose enough to allow the tire to spin freely

When I first got my 2011 - it had a loose axle - I mainly noticed it when turning a corner

Had to get a new cotter pin cause the one that was there I broke trying to remove to tighten the axle nut.

While your at it - grease them too of you haven't already.

Sorry. I don't get it. Are you asking about the trailer tires or the tow vehicle tires?

Sorry put the the spare on the TT. Travel trailer tire looks really worn. I thought maybe it wasn't lined up good. My first travel trailer.

Check to be sure the shock absorber isn't rubbing on the back of the tire. Mine was/is rubbing on one tire now. Still working the right fix after changing the axles, the tires, and the rims.

Maybe low air pressure? That will make it heat up and wear faster
