Ok, thanks a lot guys!
AzTJ, the tire as a whole... Today I THINK the brakes are jammed again... I usually shift into 3rd at about 20-25 but today it was more like 30-35... And the pedal seems to be stiff..
I took it off the ground last night and I twisted the front tires (spun) and they were hard to spin! I wasn't in gear or anything so I bleed the brakes but it seems to be back now...

I would first try to find the most level/flat ground you can find and re-assess. Sometimes with a basic lift or a disconnected sway bar it will look totally off camber.
If you do re-assess, and the problem persists... jack up the "problem" tire, and try to rock it 12 and 6 (think of a Clock).. if it rocks 12 and 6 your unit bearing is bad. A common method of thought is that you replace both sides because the other one will go right after. I only fixed one, and with only minor problems have had no issues with the other side weakening
I want to say that if it rocks 3 and 9 there is a different problem (but I do not know what that is) maybe U-joint

|Fweaky||I had a CJ that always looked like the drivers side was slanted in. Checked everything and never found anything wrong. The tire never wore on that side... but I kept them rotated twice a year.|

|Zeep||Jack the tire off the ground, check the ball joint or unit bearing, will most likely be the culprit!!!|

|AzTJ||Are you referring to the tire itself as a whole or the tread?|

|Jerry Bransford||Worst case is that you have a bent axle, far more likely is a bad ball joint, but the most likely is it is nothing more than a very common optical illusion that has fooled me on the same exact thing. I thought the same thing with mine but placing a carpenter's level on the side of the tire showed it was actually pretty darned vertical without a problem.|

As every jeeper does, they stand back and look at their jeep.. well I did and I noticed that my front driver side tire is kind of slanted outward (top is IN more than bottom..)
What would be an easy fix? Well what is wrong? lol
