Tire Wear?

Tires are wearing uneven on the inside and out. Also been having to roatate more than usual. The tires I have are Pro Comp Xtream 35's and I have been to the alignment shop and they said everything looked fine. What do I need to look for first?

Let me know what you find out too. I have the same tires and size and I have the same problem. I have 42000 miles on mine, but on the outside of only a few of them every other tread is lowered and uneven than the others. I have brand new ball joints and just had the truck checked for alignment too. What air pressure are you running.

50 psi, I've tried lower about 45 psi and it was worse. I do a lot of driving and the road noise is killing me. I guess that's what you get for buying tires for looks..

i had that wear issue on my 350... It turned out to be a bad wheel bearing... lift up yhe truck off the ground, give the wheels a tug. see if the move. I couldnt really tell on mine doing that, but when I took the wheel off and spun the rotor by hand, i heard three scrape/grinds per rotation...Hopped on amazon and ordered a set of bearing/hub thingies.. that was 3 weeks ago. new set of tires on and no sign of uneven wear...
