F-450 tread wear rating?

Does anyone know what the tread wear rating and/or what the mileage rating is on a set of Continental 225/70R19.5 HSRs? Im having issues with my dealership not being able to align my F-450 and at 25,000 miles, the outside shoulder of both my front tires are worn way down. I literally lost about 7/32 of tread within the last 5000 miles.

a friend of mine has an 08 that has 45K on it with the stock tires and they still look great, at least half if not more.

same truck here and same tires.

Ford told me the front end was dead on also.

I was told that the weight on the rear axle of the truck puts the front end up and that causes the extra stress on the side walls. I guess it's common with pulling a trailer but I'm going to check on rv.net to get other opinions.

I pull 16,000 lbs btw and have the tires rotated properly.

Tire wear has alot to do with:
*How you drive. More agressive = more weare
*How you take care of the tire. Low or high Air pressure = more wear
*The envirronment you drive in. Hi temps = more wear....
*The weight you carry. again the more weight the more stress the tire take = less miles.

And you can alway get into the brand of tire discussion....... some last longer than others.........
