Trail Express tire question

i'm looking for anything on why all four on my Trail Express tires ST 205/75D15 Load Range C. the Left front tire has wear on the outside and all the other three has wear on the inside. the Lippert trailer Axle Manual, is saying it loss of camber or overloading.

I would take this as a good answer, however, the most of have loading in my camper was food and a few case of beer.

other things, I may have 5 k tops on these tires, I have looked at three other 2012 forest river Gray wolf 27HB campers and they all have the same issue.

is the reason a bad design, or bad tires. the place where I purchased the camper are telling my tires are correct for the camper.

also I have a extended warranty is anything covered beside the tires??

Bad tires. Just ditch 'em. I had about 3,000 miles on mine and 3 gave out on one trip home. What a nightmare. I now have 4 brand new Maxxis tires on. If you made it to 5K, you done good, but you're pushing your luck.

I thought I was wrong once, but I was wrong!

The tires are garbage. Mine were lucky to last a year.

Just noted on our 2010 Wildcat that 3 of the 4 tires are 'splitting' about an inch from the bead. Tread is fine and evenly worn and there appears to be no checking. Just the splitting on the outside of three tires. Son was greasing the wheel bearings when he noticed the problem. He is taking the unit to Myrtle Beach this weekend so we are going to replace all four tires. Now if I can only find who to contact about these tire failures.

I have these tires on mine and they feel really bouncy like a vehicle tire rather than trailer tire. I'm running correct pressure and I'm not over loaded.
