Well, I finally go around to greasing the wheel bearings on the WW. I had rotated my tires months ago but don't remember the sequence I used.

I'm sure I put the #2 tire to the #3 or #1 postion the last time I did the tire rotation. But I currently find that my #3 tire has the least amount of wear.

Question: For those of you have have triple axles.... which of your tires show the most tire wear? Thanks

I haven't had the current trailer long enough, but my past one my rears (3) would show the most ware.
My rotation was 3 to 1, 1 to 2 and 2 to 3 I always like to keeps the tires turning in the same rotation so I would never switch right and left sides.

I think it has to do with weight distribution because my front tires wear faster then the rear, but I have a lifted truck and front axle of my trailer is higher than the rear so they slide more across the pavement when I turn than the rears because of the pitch of the trailer.

Looks like the best solution is to keep track of the miles and keep the rotation pattern the same each time. Shucks.... just something else I gotta keep record of

I know you get to put a lot more miles on than I do but mine wore pretty much even on the last set of tires. The only time I saw any difference is when I didn't have the same air pressure in all three of them. In 300 miles I could see a difference when I had one aired up a couple of lbs more than another, especially the center one. Also, if I'm not carrying the jeep I have to drop the air pressure down to around 60 to keep the centers of the tires from wearing due to the light weight on the axles.

Rod, that'd be 65 lbs. The max pressure for the D rated 225's. I set them cold, make sure they are even, and leave them alone after that.

FYI, mine weighs 8900 on the trailer axles loaded for camping with about 1/4 tank of water, probably 1/2 tank of gas, and all the usual stuff. It goes up to 12,500 with the jeep loaded.

#3 shows the most wear, then #2 for me.
