odd tire wear

888 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  incogneato

Tires were actually at 32 psi cold (previous gauge faulty), which is apparently low enough to make this tire begin to wear on the outsides.

I just noticed that my left rear tire has heel-toe wear on the inside and outside blocks. The three middle rows (Goodyear Wrangler Adventure) do not exhibit any wear. All four tires are at 35 psi, and the other three do not show any wear at all. The set has ~150 miles on it. The factory tires, which had a little over 100 miles on them when pulled, did not show any wear, and the truck tracks true.

I haven't been off-road, struck/run-over anything, and haven't been in a wreck.

Any ideas?

Do you still like the tires? I have the silent armor which is the precursor to the adventure but they are getting about done for after 70,000 miles.. Heard some not good things about the adventure compared to the silent armor. Also what did you pay for what size?
I did not. After going through three sets and four balances, I took a loss and replaced them with Hankook DynaPro ATm. None of the Adventures would balance properly (although the last set came close). Additionally, at 35 psi they jarred my truck to the point that my front passenger glass rattled on moderate bumps, but at 32, the felt like they had melted into the pavement. They were more quiet than the Hankook, but that was the only advantage, to me.

The first set were P265/75R16, which seemed to impact both hill-climbing and braking; the last two were P265/70R16 (which oddly enough, looked about as large as the Hankook in a 70). They were about $180 ea., plus mount/balance, although the tire shop allowed my $100 ea. for the Hankook HT take-offs.

I find it interesting that the Silent Armor had such a loyal following, but GY replaced it with a tire that few seem to like. Good luck if you decide to try them (open a GY Credit account and they double the rebate).
