    Tire Wear

    I have a 369RL I just noticed that I have a 6-8 inch band all the way across both front tires that have zero tread left but the rest of the tire is fine. I've always had the correct air pressure 80PSI. I have less that 10,000 miles on the trailer. Any clue on what would cause that condition?

    Sounds like a flat spot from a hard brake application to me. That is normally where flat spots come from, skidding the tire.

    Odd that it is only the front, but it would be dependent on which brake is adjusted tighter.

    That's what it sounds like to me. Might be the fronts are somehow getting more voltage than the rears. Checking wiring and voltage at each brake would be a start.

    Even more odd that it's only one area (flat spot) on each front tire. Seems to me they would have to be locked up for a significant amount of time to cause that condition. Hmmmm Pictures sure would help.
