I have a '15 JKUR and I am at about 11K miles. Recently I noticed that the tires were making more noise than ever before, much more. I look and saw that the were wearing much more in the front tire than the back. Inside and outside of the tires. The back tires had much better tread wear

I moved them to the back and as I expected the road noise shifted to the back.

My steering seems to be dead on and I have no reason to expect a front end alignment issues.

Has anyone seen this? Is it common with these tires?

Any help appreciated.

Rotation on mud terrain is very important. Rotate in the spare to get 20% more life. (My first post never posted?....Sorry if it does later and this is redundant ) Every oil change is a good wa uh to remember.

In 11K miles there should have been at least 2 rotations. Front tires will normally wear sooner than the rears. Do more frequent rotations up until they have to be replaced.

Mine were rotated every oil change. Those mud terrains got louder and louder. I hated them the last 10,000 miles luckily they wouldn't pass inspection at 40k miles so I got All Terrains and it's like driving a Cadillac now.

I've had a couple sets of BFG MTs over the years and I must saw I wasn't impressed with how the KM2s were wearing on my last Jeep.
On the '16 that's on it's way I think I'm going to try Duratracs. Seems like a lot of people like them..

I always heard rotation was 7500, but either way I missed it too. One of those things. Look up and you have put it off too long. I think I may go the BF Goodrich A/T direction. This road noise is pretty loud.
