I have been getting excess wear on the front passenger tires. I have gone through two tires in under 30,000 miles. Towing 40 toyhauler loaded to about 20,000 lbs. I have a 2018 Ram 3500 DRW 4x4 diesel. I have about 8,000 towing. Have had the front end looked at by the dealer and they say there is not real adjustment and everything looks good. Anyone else experience this type of excessive wear?

Those the OEM tires? Have read several forum posts about the Ram tires not being good for long mileage...no personal experience. Nexen? brand.
If the dealer says it is ok, then you need to go to a competent alignment shop and get a second opinion, being able to show them the wear pattern.

Wing nut - thanks. Cheap tires for sure. My concern was that maybe there is too much weight in the bed or too much weight in the rear of the toyhauler. I have had various truck and trailer configurations. First time with a dually and first time with this type of wear. I will go to a couple of good front end specialists. Thanks for the reply!

Well, you have plenty of truck. Might have to look at real weights--ever get it weighed for actual numbers? Are you hauling a toy or empty?

Look into Centramatics. Best investment yet. Still buy the tractor driver who introduced them to me $100 in Tim cards annually. I even put them on the rv trailer.

What is the recommended inflation pressure for those tires? Are you using less than recommended?
