lifted tj alignment ???'s

i am having trouble with my tj wearing the tires too quickly in the front.

what kind of alignment specs are you running and how are the tires wearing,

id like to guess that i have an average driving style, the tires are wearing more than twice as fast in the front as they are in the back.

i was told by the place that did my aligment check that i am at stock settings, i had some helpful info this weekend to run 0 toe in and 7degrees of caster


any input would be appreciated before i ruin another set of tires!!!!


thanks
matt

I don't know much about alignments, but how often are you rotating your tires? If you rotate your tires every 3,000 miles, you will get a lot better mileage out of your tires. Not that you don't know this (but I'll say it anyways), your front tires, being that they are the steering tires, tend to wear out faster because they do the majority of the work for the vehicle (IE: turning movements). Further they take up the brunt of the force when you brake (Weight transfer). Not to mention, off road tires tend to wear out faster because the tread lugs are spaced out more. Hope this helps you out!
