what kind of help would you like? What mods do you have, post a pic of the truck.

Tire wear should probably be taken to an alignment shop.
Door rattles, pull the panels and check for loose clips/bolts
Windshield whistle, have a glass shop check it out.

Thanks for the quick response, I took my truck to my dealership they were unable to repair the above issues.
The trucks thrust and alignment was checked and all was within factory specs, they had had my drivers door apart , they also tried to seal the windshield
I was hoping that Cory or crystal would eventually chime in and give me some direction. So far Erica from customer service hasn't really helped out other than listen to my rant. Lol

Listening to you rant is a good first step.

Do you have pics of the tire wear? Is it cupping, the outsides/inside of the tread?

Unfortunately and no disrespect to anyone but I have little faith in most dealers

I have pictures but don't know how to upload them have to get my daughter to do it.
The rear tires were tearing treads in the center two tread pattern areas and wearing extremely fast I'm on my forth set and its costing me plenty at 377 per tire.
This could be a easy fix for ford just either figure out the cause and fix it or give me another truck

What tires are on the truck? Size and load range

Sounds like one of 2 things. Wrong load range tires or the dealer is overinflating them.

I had Michelin 275/65 r20 two sets both did the same thing, tire tread tearing off and rapid wear. The third set was bfg all terrain ta 285/65r20 these wore out fast less then one year rear mostly. The four set of tires are toyo 295/65. R20 these tires are wearing out as well
All of these tires are load range e which are what the truck specs call for. As for the inflation
They are set at factory and truck specs its getting costly I have friends who have the same truck and they aren't having a problem. Frd customer serivce says I am overloading the tires. I have a 350 the most I have is 800 pounds of tunge weight

Ford inflation specs or whats printed on the tire.

If its ford spec theyre overinflating the tire by about 20psi and theres your problem. WIth the exception of the BFGs anyway
