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....
