Wheel bearing?

My tiers are getting a weird cupping on the outside and inside of the front tires is this the sign of a bad wheel bearing? I had new ball joints and an alignment not even a year ago. If it is the wheel bearings has anyone ran the ones on eBay that partsman is selling? Comes with warranty and the price is right, thanks for any help

Shocks wont have any effect on that Ralph.

Could be a bad wheel bearing. but it sounds more like a bad alignment job or the ball joints are shot again.

Get it in and get the alignment recheck.

What kinda air pressures are you running in the tires

I was in the tire business for 20yrs, bad shocks (especially coupled with an out of balanced tire) can cup a tire for sure.....

The bad shock isn't doing it's job in rebound and allowing the tire to kind of, "skip" down the road causing the cupping. I didn't read the post carefully enough to notice his alignment was a year old (meaning a LOT can happen in a year ) so, yea, have the alignment checked and they'll tell you about the B-Js & bearings too

Sure it can do that on a car. I agree. But not on a solid front axle truck.

currently have the BFG AT's 285-75-16 and I checked the air pressure and they are all around 65 psi which is whats recommended but looking at it better today it is more of a steady wear and on the inside more than the outside. I just bought new rims and tires so before I put them on I guess I will put it in the shop and get it figured out, thanks for the help guys. And as far as the bearings if that is the problem where is the best place to get those as far as price and quality?
