awkward mud grappler wear?

im running 385/75/16 (38x15) mud grapplers on my 01 f250. ive got dual fox racing 2.0 shocks on the front. i recently had a bad tire alignment which caused a slight cupping... so i rotated my tires n did a burn out and had my alignment done.


now, after a while, the "toe nails" on the raptor claws are wearing down in a cupping fashion. its no through the whole tire like normal cupping would be. just right on the "toe nails"??? making little divots. not very noticable by looking at em, but def when you feel em.

any ideas???

You might want to put up a picture so that people are sure they know what your saying is wrong with the tires and how they are wearing. Unfortunately I don't have any suggestions as to what might be causing the wear. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable can chime in on the situation.

Use a good camera and you should be able to catch the angle, then we can help out

Just a thought but what size are your wheels? If they are to narrow for those 15" wide tires it would be higher on the sides wouldn't they..and if they were under inflated it would do the same i would think ..but thats just ideas i have so i could be wrong

the wheels are 10 wide... i understand what youre saying... but if you look t the tread pattern of a grappler and see that only the "toe nails" are wearing... it doesnt make any sense to me?? and only on the front
