    How's my tire wear ??

    Hey Tire Sages...
    Had a stone become so impregnated into one of my Westlake tires that it became unserviceable !!!
    Seems like the rubber is very soft on these tires ?? (Just watch the sidewalls when you make a U-TURN !!!) )
    That was it for me...
    I already had 15K on them, and got tired of playing Russian roulette, so I just replaced all the Westlakes with Sailun S637's.
    I chose these for their 14 ply G rating in lieu of the 10 ply Endurance.
    Also, put on billet aluminum valve stems that are internally bolted onto wheels.

    My question is...How does the wear pattern look on these tires below ??
    I am concerned about axle alignment after reading some posts regarding uneven wear.

    I appreciate any assistance in evaluation. The edge wear appears equal on both sides to me ??
    Not sure if I'm not missing anything.
    Thanks,

    @Da Breeze tire wear looks good to me. I don't think you have an alignment issue.

    The one in the first photo definitely has excess wear on the right edge. The other two look fine considering the miles you have on them.

    Good eye, I didn't pick up on the slight wear until you mentioned it.

    But like others have said, I don't see any significant issue here.

    ^^ This^^^ but with 15K on your westlakes before replacement it appears they held up very well

    Thanks to all who remarked, I appreciate the input.
    Hopefully, there won't be edge wear on new tires indicating any problem.
    I sure hate problems. 😉

    Edge wear indicates an alignment issue of some sort. You should probably fix that as soon as possible.

    On a trailer edge wear is not necessarily due to an alignment issue. The tires scrub in a turn which wears the edges. Mine have some edge wear and when the tire dealer looked at them it is normal for a trailer due to the scrubbing in turns.
