bad dad if the outer tread is more worn than the center by all means fill them up with more air. If they're the 275's run 42 to 48 psi in them. Otherwise if its the outside as opposed the inside as mentioned by the other guys just remount them reversed.
I like to consider myself an expert at tread wear after what I went through to get my toyo m/t's. friggen stealership had a deal where if you rotated your tires 9 times at their dealership at $20 a rotation every 5k miles at the 9th rotation you got $800 dollars for new tires. So this sounded great to me. Well I got to 50k miles and my 9th rotation but apparently the fine print states you have to have 2/32nd's tread depth all the way across to get the credit!!! That is as bald as a baby's a$$! So I leave pissed off but its not the service guys fault as he was hooking me up and putting the $800 credit toward aftermarket tires which he really wasn't suppose to do. Anyway's I go home that night find some abandoned parking lots and start power braking!! Holding down the brake and putting the beast in 2nd and gently easing into burnouts. Anyways, I go back the next day after being chased by security guards at 2 locations and doing about 6 1-2 minute burnouts. They're looking pretty good now real bald. They get the digital measurement and the outside treads are still too high. At this point I'm pissed the dealership is 30 miles away from me and i'm there 2nd day in a row. I said f*ck it mind you its broad daylight, I air down my tires to 28 psi to wear the outside tread and go 0.5 mile away to a 1,000,000 sq ft warehouse that had a sign up for leasing it so it was empty however it is in viewing distance from a major highway and there is all office buildings around but I didn't give a $hit at this point. I get out pour some bleach on the old tires in the back and did a legit 4 minute burnout with the truck in second and the traction control turned off. I lit the f*cken sky up with so much smoke it covered the entire 1,000,000 sq ft warehouse loading dock (probably 100 loading docks) you get the picture. I couldn't see $hit, smoke everywhere, coming in the cabin through my vents even though I had the a/c off and inside air pushed. My truck reaked of burnt rubber for a week, thank god for leather lol. But needless to say the one tire was good enough to send in and burnt down to nothing. It was truly a work of art after all the frustration. Crazy ish but I got the toyo's for $600.00! Plus the cost of the bleach and tire rotations, lol.
