Tires wearing faster outside half of tread.

I noticed my at's are wearing uneven. Just checked toe-1/8", 27lbs air and on garage floor measuring with a square, top to bottom they angle in at top rather than the opposite you would expect if camber was off due to ball joints.
No slop with tires off ground with the 6-12 0'clock pull.
All four are doing this. ?
Just swap to letters out to max the life out of them?
It's just something I noticed after a lot of miles on these, but nonetheless the inner blocks have easily over a 5/16" depth, outers maybe 3/16".
Is 1/8" toe too much?

1/16" minimum with 1/8" toe-in being pretty appropriate for a 33" tire.

Getting Savvy...

When you have a choice, buy American.

Thought so. Just seemed with the uniformity of the issue left to right, my first guess was excessive toe rather than both side ball joints. Probably have 30-32k on em anyway.

Actually, my tires are wearing on the outside, and i have a feeling my tires are angled opposite, just like you mention. I was also told it's got to be the toe in, but checked mine just like you did and also was fine.....

Anyone else having this problem but us two?

(I used to rotate my tires frequently before and guess they were never worn enough for me to notice before they got swapped, but haven't done so in a long time now and definitely noticeable).

Haha. This thing is too high to speed on corners and besides, my slowness coincides with age, perhaps surely not wisdom
