Tire wear

I have an acmw tow dollie. It has maybe 4k miles on it. The inside of the tire gave is wearing faster than the rest of the face (tread). Is that because the tires are not sitting correctly when loaded.... Maybe the axle is bending when loaded. What do you think. This might have already been discussed... Hope in not repeating another post

I've seen an extensive thread about Acme tow dolly tires here, or at rv.net or the Forest River forum. Do a search.

Both tires or just one side? In any case, wearing on the inner edge is a problem with the wheel camber, which on a trailer axle means either a bent axle or bent/damaged spindles (the end where the hub & wheel mounts. A common cause of this is an overload that results in the axle bending. Maybe even just a near max load plus a big pothole. It only takes once,
