Oh my front end...
So I am new to this forum since I just bought my 94.5 P/S just last week.
I bought some used tires (uniroyal a/t) and they were E rated and 10ply tire so I am figuring that they would be a good all around tire.
Now i have driven my truck for about 5 days with these tires on and I looked at them yesterday and noticed that my front tires are wearing on the outside and like bad... got the lumpy one lug different height thing going on.
Now my toe in is out... well in... 1/4 inch toed in, but I did that today so hopefully that will fix my problem, but incase it does not, what are some things I can do to help avoid destroying my tires? I have been reading some of the forums and there are suspension upgrades that help??
Also what is a good tire for these truck that can actually handle all the weight? I had an 87 idi and Loved that truck (which is the reason why I bought this one) but I had bfgoodrich km2 on there and they didnt have funny wear but they wore quick, like 60% tread after 7000km when they were rated for 60000km. So wanna find an all season tire that will actually hold up the front end of this pig without wearing right out after a year.
Any help and advice would be great, I am a commercial transport mechanic apprentice, and there are completely different issues, like tires, that i gotta figure out. Thanks!
