    I have ruined a nice set of 33X12.5X15 BFG AT'S on the front of my truck. They're bald on the outer edge & the inner edge has 3/4's of the tread left. What is my problem & how do I repair it? If it's something that a shop has to do, how & how much. I have been told that I will have to use offset balljoints. Also the axle (10B) dosn't look bent. thanks

    Your toe is probably too far in. This scrubs the outside of the tires. If the housing is bent it will usually wear the inside of the tire, as will worn ball joints, bearings, and such. Getting the outside to wear early is harder on strait axle rigs. Have the alianment checked if it is good, then you might not want to keep doing 45 MPH when turning.
