One point not mention so far is, have you weighed the trl yet? You wouldn't believe how easy it is to overload the trl and tire wear as show is one result.

I am having the same problems with my 2011 Grey Wolf. It is at the dealer now, they are working with Lippert to replace the axles, and they will cover the tires. I am in a waiting game with them.

I had something similar happen on a single axle trailer 2 years ago. We had made a 6000 mile trip from Toronto to Brownsville, Tx with no noticeable tire wear. The next year I added a WD hitch and had to replace the tires when I got home. Before installing new tires I had the axle alignment checked and all seemed good. The old tires wear load range C so I upgraded to Load Range D tires and had 12000 miles on them when I sold the trailer. I thought maybe I was transferring enough extra weight to the trailer axle with the WD hitch to overload the C tires.

if it has the lippert axles in it, it's probably bent incorrectly. Had mine replaced for wearing like yours just over a year ago. FR stepped up and paid for the new tires as lippert wouldn't cover them. I did catch mine quite quickly (within 6 months) of purchasing the trailer.

Well know that it has been a while but the dealer finally got to my trailer. They were going to charge me for an axle inspection that I declined hoping that someone who say something. Well the tech was looking it over and told them that if he just put new tires on it that they would just wear out again. lippert is sending new axles and tires. I am adding the metal valve stems and having them balanced. Axles should be here sometime this week. Thank goodness for good service techs.
