Odd tread wear on a dully

I'm trying to figure out why my dully tire is wearing oddly. It is the inside rear tire on the left side of the truck. It is balding badly on the outter edge. I've already switched it with the right inside tire and that one did the same thing once placed in the inside left rear position with in 500 miles, so it's not the tire itself. Will add a pic this evening. Waiting for a response from my dealership, but my mechanic has never seen it before.
Any thoughts.

is there a difference in pressure between the two tires on that corner? sometimes if the one dual has too much pressure it can scuff the tread right off of the other. thats why a lot of OTR trucks have balance hoses for each set of duals

It really sounds like your left outside dual has too much pressure. If you want to pinpoint that particular wheel, try putting it on the right side.. If the funky wear follows that tire, you'll find the culprit
