Anyone else have an 07' or newer that they feel has a suspension or alignment issue? I cannot seem to get more than 30-K out of a set of tires and I rotate every 5-K and have already had 4 alignments on the truck since I bought brand new. It now has 62,xxx miles. I've talked to other owners and they feel the same way...anyone else?

Sounds expensive, I dont know your driving habits, but a lot of hard breaking wears out tires especially if your toting a trailer.

I know my 2008 seems to wear fronts but the 2011 not so much

I drive normally and don't break hard. I've been towing a 6x10 open for the last 4 months or so.

How many miles are the tires you're using rated for? I've made a point to do as much coasting to lights with as little braking as possible on this last set of tires and I'm definitely getting better wear out of them. Running up to lights with a trailer on and having to brake fast grinds them down quick!

They have a 60-K warranty on them....which Sears better honor cause they have been rotated every 5-K.

Don't know if Tundra was included, but Tacomas had a recall on lower ball joints...inner tie rods are prone to wear in frequent off road conditions.

Are you running Pmetrics or LT's? Tundra is too heavy for P's.

I get roughly 50-60k on my 285 BFG AT. The original duellers on my 09 melted at 20k.

I just read an article that says it could be a bad tire if the truck is pulling.

I think my tundra has the same problem. I rotate them every 5k miles and my first set only lasted 29k miles. Im on my second set of tires now and hope they last longer than the original bfg all terrains. My truck is a 2011 with 33k miles by the way.

Tundra did have wheel recall. Worth a visit and conversation.

I know at one time ford had alignment issues too. Have a strong talk.

Update:

I ended up buying some actual truck tires today. Went with the Firestone Transforce as recommended by a few others. Luckily, I was able to get a credit of $95/tire from the Michellins I currently have on as they have a 60-K mile warranty. I probably could get another 3-K out of them, but I figured I'm getting the pro-rate, so I just bought the Transforce. We shall see how this works....
