RE: Drive tire rotation
I checked my drives again today...they all have that choppy feel....I dont beat my truck...I've had it 6 months and just trying to iron out some issues...
My average speed is usually under the limit...just want to make sure I'm not missing anything stupid...my truck is my bread and butter and I want to get the most out of my investment...
All the trucks that haul a** by me daily must really be tearing their stuff up...
Thanks for the advice....

My backhaul is usually 10k or less or empty trailer...think that may have something to do with this wear pattern? I don't go over 70mph...will try backing out of the throttle some...
light loads and and heavy acceleration or high torque. It’s the symptoms. I have the same. (I run half my miles empty. Basically everything I do is wrong.) Lowering air pressure might help if your aired up to max psi. Best fuel mileage is a little over inflated so under inflated will cost fuel mileage. Power is what causes it.

RE: Drive tire rotation
How do you feel the choppyness the most? When you slide your hand side to side across the tires or when you slide it forward or when yoy slide it backwards?

Do you have a sliding 5th wheel? If it is too far back, you'll get the back side of every lug on the tire worn off and the front side of every lug sticking up. Or if you tail load your trailer heavy a lot. The correction for this problem is to move your 5th wheel up and rotate your tire in an X pattern.

Front to back...
My back hauls are very light....like 7k in the box or empty trailer....

The 5th wheel is slightly forward of being centered between the drives.
