March 28, 2006I work at a tire store to full time and its not a "joe blow used tires shop" so once again you shouldnt cross rotate. if u have wierd tire wear its usally a mechanical problem
March 28, 2006tiregod, which "tire store" would this be? I'm sure you'll be more than willing to tell us, since you are overly confident and 'undoubtedly' correct.....
March 28, 2006Everytime I step on the skinny peddle I ROTATE the TIRES!!!
You guys just work to much.
March 29, 2006I agree that unusal wear is typically a mechanical problem.
Joe blow used tire store.
The Joe Blow tire store I work for doesn't sell used tires. Here, check out there corporate web-site. I work at the Morton store.

Hey John, they now do tranny flushes if your interested.
Maybe on the west coast they don't cross the non-drive axle wheels. But here in the mid-west we do, at least at the Chain I work for.
March 29, 2006i cant rotate my tires. the ones on the back are tore the crap up. one of them has a huge flat spot wher if you go like 5mph you can feel the truck dip. the fronts have a ton of weights to ballance them and they are the best out of the 4. sooo im gonna have to replace before i rotate.
heres one of the tires, you can see the weights all over the place theres even two rows of stick on weights on the left of the rim, the inside of the rim is the same way gotta love them bias plys
March 30, 2006That is a lot of weight. Wow!!!!
Have you considered sand bags inside the tire instead?
March 30, 2006ya im getting really crappy wear out of a brand new set of big o at's , ive got about 7500 miles on them and the backs are already screwed..
and these are really expensive tires too.. there more than the bfgs and wranglers.. but they are wearing horribly..
March 30, 2006yeah i looked into that a while back, i forgot the proper name of the stuff i was looking at it but it was like loose sand they use in truck tires.
i just went with the weights cause i work next to a machanic shop and get to do all the ballancing and get the weights for free. so no big deal to me.
