    Tread Wear On Westlake Tire.

    I pulled the tires off my rig today as I am having Sailuns put on.

    I noticed a weird wear patten on one tire on only one spot. It's a band about 1" to 1.5" across the tire (from the inside to outside, not around the tire). I attached 2 photos. What would cause this strange wear? All the other tires are fine, no odd wear, and this is in just one spot on this tire.

    Brakes locked up on that axle at some point? That's the only thing I can think of. Maybe even when it was being towed to the dealership before you took delivery.

    Might have even be an impact damage from running something over. Marcy's first thought was that the tire is stating to fall apart (crumble) 1 little piece at a time like it was just a bad spot in the tire.

    I got my Sailuns mounted on the wheels and I mounted them on the rig yesterday. They will get their first run on Monday on the way over to the Tampa RV show.

    Tire guy said that tire locked up and got dragged a short distance.
