uneven tire wear?

Ok guys I remember seeing a thread about this but was not able to locate it. I have some 31x10.50 R15 Pro-Comp X-Terrians. The Frint tires are wearing unevenly. It is NOT the inside or outside tread. it's like the back side of the lugs are more worn then the front side... does that make any sense? And it's not every lug just about every other one. I have rotated and balanced them at 3000 mile intervals. I have about 10-12K on them. I am looking for advice cause I really don't want to tell the wife that I need new tires AGAIN.

Thanks
Hardy

if you rotate them like you said i would have your alignment checked. since you're tires are wearing, i'd suggest going to a shop, paying the 50-75 bux and having it done picture perfect. instead of doing it yourself, which is fine, use a machine that measures 1/100th of a degree.

stupid question but did you check the air pressure as well? Make sure no one under or over inflated the tires. I checked mine recently, because they were wearing strange and there was 44 lbs of pressure in my tire, and thats their max rating. tell us what solves your problem

SurfnSnow, any luck in finding a solution? I had mine rotated and re-balanced again, with little luck. They seem to be wearing better but I am afraid that I probally will not be buying these tires again. Off-road they are great but on road they are too rough and noisy. Plus this issue. My jeep is not pulling or anyhting so I think the steering is fine. I am at a lost. I tried calling ProComp but after being on hold for 27 minutes I gave up.

heya Hardy, so far I've had the alignment checked probably twice a year since hard wheeling will knock out of wack more often than not. What has helped a little bit is that I did get the centramic wheel balancers and they have helped both in smoothing the drive and in wear but the tires might be to far gone. they are great on the trail, on the road they are noisy but they are a MT so I didn't expect a quiet ride. I'm wondering if anyone else with these tires (and the mickey thompson baja claw) that are directional have this issue. My next set of tires will probably be maxxis
