Eating UP Tires

I have an 07 Limited and noticed that the front tires were wearing on the insde edges of tires, so I took it into the dealership and they corrected the ride heigth, tow and camber and adjusted teh alignment. Then they rotated the tires. The tires are still wearing on the inside edge to the point that the now rear tires which were on teh front to begin with have eatin into the secondary rubber and the front tires are starting to wear that inside edge now. I only have 29500 mile on these tires. They are wearing good all across the rest of the tires, but for some reason it is eatin that inside edge up. I am really concerned with the fact that the back tries are still wearing bad on that inside edge. Any ideas?

that's a new one on me....

I would take it back, and show them the damage that was done to the tires.... this wear is not "your" fault, and that the poor alignment has COST YOU a set of tires. If they are already into the 2nd layer, IMHO they are NOT safe to be driven on.

Do you have the Goodyear SR-As on it still?? If you do they are part of the problem... They are cheap $hit tires!!

My Dad had an 05' Durango and consistently got 60k+ miles out of his SR-A's. And I don't think the type of tire should have anything to do with the inside prematurely wearing out. Sounds like the toe angle is off.

The verdict is that they tires are wearing on the edge of the belts so could be a bad set of tires. the alignment is not out
