Tires wearing unevenly

Hello, I have a 2006 Grand Cherokee with a 2" rough country spacer lift and 255/70/17 tire size. Lately I've noticed that my tires are wearing very quickly on the outside and almost not at all on the inside. I was wondering if anyone knows which part I'd need to replace to straighten the wheels out? It's almost like I'm riding on a camber right now. I dont know if I need new control arms or A arms, or an extended version of both. If anyone can give me information on this that's be great. Thank you.

There are several components which if loose or worn can cause the outside of a tire to wear quickly. Another thought before replacing parts though, it may also just need an alignment, especially if you had not gotten one done when the lift was installed. Either a positive camber or the Toe adjustment can cause the outside of the tire to wear. For a bit more in depth details here is a great reference

Thank you for the response! Did not expect Discount Tire to be on of the replies at all so that's pretty neat. I did get an alignment after my lift, we ended up breaking my outer CV axle so it had to be re-aligned anyway. I need new tires regardless of the wear, but will definitely try an alignment at that time. Thanks! Let me know if you guys have any deals on Firestone Destination A/Ts! Lol. Thanks!

Hello, and sorry for the late reply. Since my post count is at 4/10, I can't send PMs yet, hope this thread is an okay way of communication for now. In regards to your offer, I'm interested to see what you have. I only need three tires, I originally bought five when I purchased my wheels. I'm interested to see what you can offer for three Destination A/Ts at the size 255/70/17. My zip code is 53066. Thanks!
