This is my front left tire. It's wearing unevenly that I have recently noticed. All other tires are fine. Anyone able to help me diagnose?

You might need to rotate them? My tires do this too and start to get obnoxiously loud, but once I rotate them it gets a little better. I think when you put the front tires on the back it rounds them out more.

Yea proper psi and frequent rotation will get even wear and longer life. I just got mine done today. Every 3k to 4k they're rotated.

I can't really tell from the picture but it appears you have excessive toe on the tires. So instead of the tires rolling "straight" down the road, they are constantly angled either in or out which is causing a sideway scuffing action, thus uneven wear. If it is in the front, it's easy to fix. If it is the back then you need to have a friend drive behind you and make sure you are not dogtracking before you get too deep into it.

I rotate regularly and it's only happening to the one tire and its never happened to any of the front right tires before so I am going to have them check the tow on that side. Thanks for the input everyone. It's pretty frustrating and I was hoping it wasn't anything suspension related that was a big issue or going to cause future problems.

If it's on the front and only one tire, check for worn components and leaking shock on the suspect side.
