Tire GONE!

RF 35" Toyo M/T on my 08 is getting chewed up on the outside and the truck pulls right. Took it to NTB and they said everything was good? The LF.......noooooo wear. Any ideas?

Sounds like an alignment or bearing issue. If everything was good, the tire wouldn't be chewed up and it wouldn't be pulling to the right.

Support your truck with jack stands under the axle and try the following:
Trying to move the tire with you hands at the 3 & 9 o'clock positions will check tie rod ends.
Put a board under the tire from the side of the truck and try to lift the tire, movement here will indicate a bad ball joint or unit bearing.
If the tire moves when you jack the axle, could be a bad unit bearing.

You can also measure toe. Measure from center to center on both the trailing edge and leading edge of the front tires. Down low is fine. Toe is usually about 1/8th inch more width across the rear.

Had the truck up and checked for bearing issues....nothing. The toe should've been checked when it was in for the alignment. Since the left tire shows no wear...should I just tell them to set the right to the same specs?

take it to another shop, outside of the tire tells me you toe is off , camber possible, bearings or balljoints would cause the inside to be bad.

i know big o will tell you what is worn out,

could always take a tape measure and measure the front and the back of the axle, center of the tire to center of the tire, the measurement should be the same. if not toe is off

sounds like to much positive camber on right front [top of the tire leaning out] if u have the alignment print out look at the right front camber reading should be close to middle of the specs or very close to left front specs
