Strange tire wear

I have a 25 foot enclosed car trailer. It weighs 8,000 lbs loaded. 4,000 of trailer and 4,000 of Jeep and motorcycle. (And of course associated tools etc)

Replaced all 4 tires last March new Goodyear endurance 225-75-15 10 ply

They have close to 20,000 miles on them.

I’m the pics you will see in one half of the tire there is very odd wear in the outside shoulder of the tire. The other half of the tire has “normal” wear. I would say these tires are half life on tread. The tire in question came from the rear passenger (right) side

The other 3 tires on the trailer show no unusual tread wear.

I checked the bearing adjustment and there is very little end play meaning I believe they are adjusted properly. I checked the other 3 and they are all about the same (no surprise I serviced the brakes and bearings about 10,000 miles ago including repacking bearings).

I have 2 questions for the tandem trailer tire experts. What do you think would cause this?
Is the tread wear normal (40,000 miles is about what to expect?).

I drive mostly highway. Pictures attached. Thanks in advance for the advice.

Alignment, bent axle, worn spring shackel or bad shock.

That looks like a toe-in issue. Place a straight edge along both tires at axle height. The tires should contact the straight edge at 4 points. I'm betting that the bad tire will only contact at the back. It's a cheap and easy way to test the alignment. You can also use a taunt string. Good luck.

Donít get me wrong but your saying your jeep/motorcycle/tools are under 4000 lbs the Jeep Wrangler is 2900 lbs and thatís the Smallest they make.

The tire looks like your camber is off.

I should mention it has torsion axles, eveything looks straight, they are 5,000 lbs each giving me 2,000 lbs of available load. It is exactly level when driving.

Place the wheel mounted on a flat surface use a carpenters square to see if they are out of camber.

If not then itís a toe issue.

This link has some info on adjusting

Update. Sent tire in to my tire expert. He tells me there is nothing wrong with the trailer, this failure was caused by belt separation. New tire installed. Guess I’ll know for sure once I put a few thousand miles on the new tires
