    Default New tires wearing!

    I got some Goodyear duratracs (315/70 r17)about 6 months ago and have been extremely happy with them so far. Hopwever, I recently was looking at my front tires and they are extremely worn on the outer edges. The center and inner portion of the tread looks almost new as do the entire back tires. I am guessing that my alignment is off and also guessing that this is not an inflation issue. Can anyone chime in about the best way to go about getting this taken care of? Could this be something other than an alignment issue? I am confident it's not my lift (6" Fabtech w/ 4.0 dirt logic shocks). How much is a typical alignment for a rig like mine ('07 Silverado, quad cab, 4x4)?

    rotate front and back first. then get an alignment done.

    hey bud i just got my duratracs but i had the same problem before and had to get a new wheel aligment pluse its always good to rotate your tires every 5k just to be on the safe side this will help with keeping the tires even

    You never lined it up after the lift kit?
