Tire wear on 21RR/19RR

I just happend to notice yesterday when I was putting my c-chocks on that the inside of my tires on both sides and all 4 are wearing tremendously on the inside?

I'm always dilligent about checking pressures and keep them at about 45lbs. They appear to crown and I would expect them to wear in the middle of the tire based on appearance....... Anyone have any expirience with this?
It's a 2012 and we have only put about 6000 miles on the trailer. I find it difficult to believe this is standard tire wear?

If all 4 tires are wearing on the inside, there are only 3 causes possible: 1) Wheel brgs are loose 2) both axles are bent or do not have the proper camber in them 3) grossly overloaded

It is definitely a dealer repair issue. Take it back to the dealer.

Not a can of worms except in your mind. Simply stating facts. Maxxis seems to be the best option in an ST tire. But I would certainaly have axle alignment checked by a qualified shop before I spent money on tires. Could simply be cheap Chinese junk with belt failures.

Don,

You have beat this horse many times in the past.
There are many of us who are quite happy with our Marathon tires.
Please drop it. Thank you in advance.

At only 5000 miles I would have the alignment checked. Should not be wearing like they are. This seems to be a fairly common problem. Too common. Forest River needs to fix the problem.

Forgot to mention, as far as tire brands go, I replaced my factory tires the day I brought it home with Maxxis. I upgraded to a 15" D load range as well. All the reviews I have read on the Maxxis are pretty positive. So far, so good for me!

I'm having the same problem, so I just called my Dealer and he told me to take some pictures of the tires and axes' and he'll send them to company and go from there. Hopefully everything will work out.
