ok so the JK has been pulling to the right for a lil bit now... when i had my last oil change at the dealer I told them to please check it out and the told me that all cleared that nothing was wrong...
today i decide to take a look at the tire wear on them and all are the same except the front right tire,, that the has kinda like a side swipe kinda look to it.. on the floor contact area.. as if you were brushing the thread from one side to another...
what should I do,, is this an alignment issue, do I take the tire off and replace with spare to see if the same happens or if issue stops,,
what would cause just one tire up front to wear differently from the other..?
one easy way to check whether such IS causing trouble, change sides the tires are on to see what effect that has.
get in--buckle up--hang on

Mine was pulling to the right since i got it and had them check everything, they ended up straightening my steering wheel and correcting the Toe-In because it was out of wack right off the production line.
just went out to try and take the pics,, and the brush effect does not come out on camera... but i decided to take the wheel off and check and see if maybe one of the balancing sticks had fallen off (none have) but I did notice that there was some friction wear on the inside of the wheel where it connects with the studs.. on 3 of the holes had friction wear and some metal shavings... so im thinking that the wheel was not installed correctly or that the lugs had loosen up or something,,, so I clean the surface and re-installed to test out tonight on my way to work.. hopefully that would do...
I would like for the dealer to do an alignment but im not sure if that is covers with warranty since i replaced my stock wheels n tires for some bigger 33's and they can claim that is causing the issue... then i end up paying for it at the dealer $$$
Have you checked the pressure? Mpg dropped as well? Could be a slow leak. I'd take the tire off and examine it closely for punctures or damage.
yeah pressure is good, i do every 2 weeks to make sure things stay good with the MPGs... I get very decent MPGs around 20 on back road driving,, with lil hills and several sharp corners that I have to slow down,,, I only take maybe 3 stop lights to my work each way about a 16 mile drive
