    my front tires wear extreemly rapidly on the outboard of the front tires, but they are like brand new on the inboard side. im running 31*10.5 bfg at. im was told to adjust the camber(wheel tilt) but how do you do it with full axles? is this just a blazer thing?

    I'd check the toe-in first, i had the same problem a couple years ago, got it aligned, the guy said the toe was way off, now they wear alot better.

    I have a problem with all four of my tires. There's chunks of side wall missing. Big hunks of the tread haved been ripped out. The sidewalls are gouged and cut up. The balance weights have been ripped off and the wheels have been dented and ground away. Is this an alignment problem? Oh yea I did that. Seriously though I would take a good look at your tie rod, more then likely it has a bend in it and that changes your tire alignment. Staighten it or better yet replace it.

    check your tie rods and linkage. look at your suspension components like the ball joints upper and lower control arms and bushings to.
