Tire wear quesiton/clarification
I am pretty sure that I read this somewhere on the forums before, but just wanted to be sure. I have noticed that on my KM2's, the outsides of the tires are wearing quicker than the insides. I have about 10,000 miles on them, and it is noticable, but not terrible. I thought I read somewhere that it is due to the way the FJ's IFS is set up, and the tires will angle in a little bit, causing the outsides to wear more. Is this correct, or do i need to get my alignment checked? I just had service about 1,000 miles ago and really haven't done much offroading since then, but even over the KM2's life, I have done a lot of wheeling and my alignment has never really been off by much. Thanks for any help!
