Uneven wear in center of front tires only???

I need some help diagnosing why the center tread of the front tires are wearing unevenly. I used to have MTRs and it got so bad I got rid of the set and now I have GY silent armors and the front just started to show signs of some uneven wear.

My question is what is causing it? I replaced u joints because they were shot, but I don't know what to do next. I'm about to buy brand new 33s but I'm nervous because I don't want them chewed up in a month or two.

Going to run it by a mechanic tomorrow and get him to check all the suspension pieces. I have been searching for a solution and a common one could be shocks or ball joints?

Over inflation will cause the center to wear faster

I realize that, but it is unevenly worn in the middle like every other tread blocks are worn more than the other

The uneven wear ONLY happens in the middle? That leads me to suspect overinflation AND something else wearing out. Have you done a dry steer test?

Have you rotated them lately. Mine looked like that in the middle of the fronts and I had them diagonally rotated. The wear is more even now.
