My buddy has a halfton CCSB with 6" pro comp lift 35" toys with 18000 miles and is goin on his third set of front tires. The tires are wearing bad on the inside, brought it to where the lift was installed, did an "alignment" and they still wearing bad.

What Gives?

Ouch........I just rotated mine for the first time at 19K, just because I figured I'd better do it not because it needed it.

Don't want to sound like a know it all but I do alignments daily. I have noticed on almost all GM trucks that run All terrain tires or even more aggressive tires like mud terrains that the inside of the tires (including my own that has a dead on alignment) definitely tend to wear faster if they are not rotated every 3000 miles or so. If the tires don't get roated on a regular basis then I would say sure it is possible to rip a front set of tires off in no time. I would say 18000 miles and 3 sets of front tires that there is something going on either with loose front end parts or just a sloppy alignment tech that only sets the toe and not the camber/caster as well. Just my .02

Have him check front end components tie rods, ball joints to check if something is loose. if they did an alignment more than once they should know if something was loose but if it was me i would double check

yeah i told him to bring it up to the shop and id look at it.... i asked him so whens the last time you rotated the tires? he kinda looked at me stunned a bit, i don't think he has rotated them since he got the new front tires on the truck im guessing but thats just a guess. He told me himself he knows nothing about trucks or anything just gave the dealer a bunch of money and told them to build how he wanted it...

If there just wearing on the inside then its definatly a unusual wear issue. Id take it to a different alighment shop. How does it sit? My buddy bought a truck and cranked the torsion bars the whole way up then got it aligned. They aligned it perfect then I saw himn driving down the road and the tires were leaning wayyyy in. He cranked the torsion bars out a few turns and fixed it right up! :rockin
