We have a 2008 Isuzu NPR 6.0 Gasser. Has about 15k on it.

I have no idea why ALL of the tires are choppy! Please don't be mislead, it's not horrible, but getting there!

I keep everything greased, what else should I be doing?

I talked with someone who has or has had the Isuzu line before we purchased it and he mentioned they "go through rubber."

Any thoughts or suggestions?

***I can't move the front to the back like we do on the pick-up becase of the different rim style.

thats strange, i have never heard that. are they cupped or what? i guess explain choppy. also check the pressure (spelling). try putting the max in all the tires and see if that works.

Choppy refers to the uneven wear of a tire. In some cases, the edges wear faster. In other cases, the entire tire shows uneven wear in individual treads.

Air pressure is perfect as it is checked regularly.

What brand of tires are on the truck ?

It sounds like cheap tires these little cab over trucks are fairly tough on tires you want a good steer tire on the front something with a closed shoulder.

I don't even think there is shocks on the back of these trucks is there ?
