Another tire problem, almost

Inspecting our sabre today in prep for next weekends trip, about 160 miles each way, and I find the right rear tire looks like this? All others have even wear. Best I can tell, all pressures are right at 80psi as stamped. I'm not overloaded, in fact under by about 900lbs at heaviest I've ever been. Thoughts?

Sorry to see that, you are lucky it didn't completely disintegrate.

It's a factory tire which should have been left at the Goodyear or Maxxis dealer.

I'd change it, 160 each way is probably to much to expect. lol
Anyway I'm surprised you have no damage losing that much tread, how many miles did you get from that one?

Only towed less then 500 miles this year and around 2000 last year. I'm going to get the spare out and see if it's the same make. I'll keep a close eye on them all but would like to wait a month before dropping the $$$. But, I also realize that could cost more. Last pull was just 7 blocks to our town park. Before that, 20 miles home from the sabre sitting at our local church camp for 5 weeks. I swear I checked with before that, but maybe missed this? Calling my tire dealer Monday I guess.

I would check to see if you have a bad or broken shackle on your springs or loose spring mount also I would check bearings for excessive play. One tire should not wear like that?

Not much life left there but question remains.....what caused it? Axle bent? Lost balance? Love to hear if you find out.

This is sitting in my driveway and I kinda jackknifed it a bit more than usual as my yard was wet so I couldn't get straight.

Rear spring hanger looks to be slightly off vertical.

Another observation is the rear hanger is angled forward instead of standing vertical which is how we always set them when we built trailers. The way it is angled, when the spring is depressed, the shackle will travel back and raise the frame. Odd to my way of thinking.

Thanks OC. I'll have my local shop look at it in my drive or take the whole rig to their shop. See what they say.
