    Hey folks, had my truck at Discount Tire a few days ago for a rotation and balance and was alerted to some extreme uneven tire wear (only 10,000 miles on tires). The front tire's inner tread was worn down enough to warrant replacing the tires. Eight hundred and some dollars later, I replaced the tires, and am currently at the alignment shop. With my - 24 offset rims, the tech isn't sure his equipment can provide an accurate reading. So, while I'm waiting, I thought I'd check if anyone else with a similar setup has experienced this issue. I realise that ball joints, tie rods and shocks could potentially be the culprit, but being a 2018, I'm leaning more towards the alignment being out of whack. As a side note, after my lift was installed, the alignment was done with the stock rims and tires, so don't know if that could be part of the problem.

    Turns out the alignment shop was able to do some magic, and complete the alignment. The tech said that the folks that performed the initial alignment had no idea what they were doing, as the alignment was completely out of whack!
