Both outer edges on both tires have worn excessively. The outer rib on both the outer and inner edge of the tire has worn down to wear there is actually a sort of step down. This is happening on both front tires. I run 80 psi in the front which matches usp with Michelin's inflation chart for weight. The Tires are Michelin XRV's 235/80/22.5. My common sence says this is an under inflation issue but again, according to weight it should be spot on. Should I try running higher pressure to correct or at least stop it from getting worse? Is there a name for this type of wear? The tires have 22000 miles on them and are 3 years old. They are perfect in every other way and the rears are wearing really well.
I had a 2004 Newmar MADP and went to Spartan in 2010 with 82,000 miles on my tires...asked Spartan why they were wearing both the inside and outside of each tire...but don't remember if wavy or not....they had a book of every kinda tire wear they had come across...and there it was ...the description said it was normal for mostly high speed over the road driving...i.e. a bus or over the road truck and I typically do a lot of highway driving...Chuck
