    R4 Tire Wear

    So tonight I was in the garage and noticed the outside third of my RF tire with visible wear. I only have 65 hours, matter of fact it's the only place on all four tires that the little rubber knubs are worn off.
    My tires are at the book setting (22/fr 20/rr) and check very regularly.
    The only theory I can come up with is I have 9/10ths of a mile road travel to the horse barn and the shoulder of our road is a slight drop off the pavement but not wide enough for the whole tractor. So I'm beginning to wonder if the RF is taking a lot of the load being dropped off the pavement. Any other theories out there?

    I have relatively even outside edge wear on my fronts. I think the only real adjustment may be toe, so if that was off both tire would still wear when directed in a straight line. It just might be the conditions you are talking about that are responsible.

    Okay, haven't really thought about toe adjustment.

    These tractors, I believe, are actually set up with a slight toe-in on the front, I would assume to assist with steering effort?

    Also, look at the camber, front tires have a lot of (negative?) camber.

    That will definitely make your outside edge wear on blacktop.

    My tires are also showing wear on the outside edge. I am on asphalt more than I want to be so I am thinking that is what is causing them to wear out like they are.

    I know what you mean, I know they're not meant for road travel, but what is strange to me is that it's only the right front.

    I would check the toe and try to get it as straight as possible, that would probably help some with a minimal effect on how it steers, I mean these ain't Corvettes that could lose control at high speed.

    I know this might sound crazy but do you turn more in one direction than the other? I know I back up more in one direction than the other cuz it's easier for me to steer and look back in that direction.

    Lol, I appreciate it, I just didn't think of toe and camber for some reason. But comparing to big trucks which I do know my guess is it's toed in on that wheel.

    Well now you're gonna make think too much but my answer would be 50/50 if I took a shot in the dark.
