do i need to let more air out? *PIC*

currently running 33x12.5 duratracs on 15x8 wheel, at ~26 psi



just got back from a 400 mile trip and you can see where the most contact is with the road, further out than that there is some wear, just not as much

Too much air would cause the center to wear more. Not enough the outsides and not so much just one side. I would think maybe your alignment is off. I had a blown shock on my front left and that caused some funny wear also. Not saying that's your problem but new shocks fixed my wear issue

Looks alright to me IMO. I run ~29psi and have a similar contact patch. You're not going to get it all the way across.

No. You don't want full across contact with a 12.5 on an 8" wheel. You could add a pound or two and be fine even. I run my Duratracs at 28 and they are perfect for me.
