Does anyone else have the problem of the rear tires wearing faster than the front tires. As much as a 30% difference in tire tread?

Yep! Diesel torque baby! Mine is more like 60-80% more wear in the rear!

Even worse if you tow heavy loads or hard acceleration starts! The only weak link is the rubber on the ground!


Lighten up the right foot, or not!

I rotate and rebalance every 5K and that keeps them pretty even. I also dropped the pressure to 45 in the rear to get full contact all the way across. No luck with the right foot though

Good rotation intervals will help to even things out. I go 6k on a rotation, same as my oil changes... Makes it easy to remember...

I rotate every 5000 with my oil change. I get pretty even wear that way. It's also alot easier to grease with the tires off.

Drive it like you stole it and save up for two new tires instead of four.
If you think like a women youll convince your self your saving money by only buying two tires instead of four.
