Inside tire gets little attention. In this case: "Never"

Sometimes

Describe the Tire Failure: [Include pictures and be as descriptive as possible]
This tire was on left front initially. Tread wear was minimal except for one of the tread rings....which was wearing excessively. Relocated this tire to left rear inner due to this tire wear (didn't want it on my steering axle).
