Rf tire wear

Getting baffled. I have been through 3 sets of tires numerous alignments. And having front end checked several times. I still get chopping on the rf tire outside edge. All other tires are wearing perfectly. Any thoughts.

How is the shock on that corner? I had the RF tire doing that on my '01 - the guy @ my tire shop suggested shocks. I replaced all the shocks, the problem went away. Just a thought.

I think the correct term is cupping....not chopping...

Shocks are new within past six moths. I replaced them to try to fix this issue

Cupping is usually from out of balance and/or bad shocks -- have you checked that rim to see if it runs true? -- when the tire is balanced, does it need a lot of weight?

Run the truck along side a long line or crack in a parking lot -- try not to steer, get lined up before
now, measure the distance from the line or crack to the front and rear tire -- should be the same, other wise the truck is dog legged -- your alignment guy can fix that

In my defense, I was unsupervised

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.
