    So I bought the truck new, have 19k on it and the tires have worn quickly on the edges.

    is this just bad tires? Need alignment on brand new truck? Justification to the wife for sway bars all around? :kona:

    I do park in parking garage at work, so not sure if that could be contributing....

    Any isight would be helpful

    I think this is a bad alignment. How do the others tires look? Maybe they never rotated them.

    Yikes. All 4 look that way? What PSI are you running? Have they ever been rotated? Ever hit anything that would have knocked it out of alignment? I wouldn't ride around on that tire much longer.

    Isn't that pattern typical of under-inflated tires?

    All 4 look the same. Been at 35psi as recommended.

    never hit anything to knock out of alignment....

    Have you been using the Toyota Care service? Maybe Toyota will warranty them?

    It looks like it is just the outside edge - is the inside edge wearing normal?

    I have been using Toyota care (rotations def being done).

    the inside is not as badly worn as outside edge.

    Toyota does bot warranty them, you have to work with manufacturer at specific locations (listed in tire warranty book)

    The stock tires are very weak in the sidewall. With our heavy trucks that shoulder area of the tire takes a beating in turns

    Tires look pretty well shot all the way across but the wear difference screams alignment issue. Solution is 4 new tires and a good alignment.....very soon. Don’t accept an alignment if they can’t show you wear it was out of spec and causing that wear. You’ll be back in the same place in 20k.

    If you do lots of city driving and are routinely cranking all the way to wheel lock it wears the outside of your tires like this. That said, I agree there is an alignment issue as well. Doesn’t matter if you think you hit something or not. Tires don’t lie.

    New tires and an alignment it is!

    Now to do the research on what tires to get with no lift

    For what it’s worth mine will look like that ina. Few thousand more miles and I kept bringing the truck back and bitching about the alignment, namely the toe, and they never got it figured out. I’m hoping new tires, of higher quality, will solve the problem.

    Go to a different alignment shop.

    Different tires won’t solve an alignment issue.

    If tires are P rated, they are under rsted for Tundra. Will wear faster.

    Those tires look pretty well worn all the way across. You’re almost down to the indicators. My truck was on the path to do that and I noticed it immediately. First thing I did was run more air pressure in the front tires. That helped. Then put a rear sway bar on only and they started wearing much more evenly. I wouldn’t rule out getting an alignment but these trucks tend to wallow in the corners.
