OP be sure to get your front aligned to 1/64" toe. This stops the outer edge "Stepping".

ONLY rotate the fronts side to side keeping rotation the same. YES than means dismounting the tires from wheels. Puts both outside edges on the inside.

I have 44k on my DRW tires and all 6 measure 5/32" tread depth. Rears never get touched.

Run 80 psi fronts all the time and 30 psi unloaded rear and inflate to what the chart dictates per your rear tires weight plus 5psi.


What prompted this rear tire change at 40k was one tire was bald. The rest were seven years old but had good tread left.


I am curious what your response has to do with I said?

In times past, he and you where right. But for at least a quarter century most big truck have had hub-piloted wheels, no longer have the inner/outer nuts you refer to.


Freightliner used the double lug nuts into at least the late 90s.

But if you’re not swapping front to back, rotating the fronts side to side to change rotation direction will smooth out tread feathering or minor cupping. Flipping the tires on the rim will even out outside tread wear from cornering, if you’re experiencing that.
Only time that’s been a factor is living/driving in the mountains full time, or on heavy dually truck front ends (little tires lots of weight).

The OP never said that it was a dealership but it sure sounds like something a dealership would pull.

Did you take it to one of the chain tire shops? Rhymes with Davis?

Well, you mentioned that your rears have 44k with 5/32” left. I was just mentioning that mine had 40k and only one was bald. That’s what prompted the replacement. I had posted a week ago asking what would cause that one tire to go bald. I was advised to replace all the tears due to age.

Just stating why I replaced it.

I agree with the op's point that a dually only has half as many lug nuts per tire as a SRW vehicle so in fact he should have gotten a discount.

I was charged an upcharge for a tire rotation because my truck is a dually. They had to dismount and remount two tires to keep the white sidewall lettering to the inside. Seemed reasonable to me.
