What's your guess as to what would cause the LF tire to go bald on the outside shoulder? I'm trying to have some idea before taking it in. It's a 2005 Tundra Double cab with 75k on it.

Thanks, Jason

The camber (the top of the tire is pushed out while the bottom of it is pushed in) of your wheel alignment is off. a quick alignment will fix the problem, unfortunately it won't put tread back on your tire haha. Caster and Camber are all adjusted by the lower control arm. there are 2 bolts that hold the lower control arm to the subframe. they look like the bolt head is off center of the rest of the "washer". the "washer" portion has degree marks on it and that is what is used to adjust camber/caster.

Get alignment done. Last owner probably did not after putting the tires on. Will fix wear problem but you may need new tires. If you do get them, get the alignment done immediately after so new ones do not wear uneven.

You can get a full aligment all the way around. It is worth the effort... IF... you have someone who knows what they're doing!

Alignment likely will fix issue unless damaged lower control arm or knuckle or other suspension component like from a prior accident. either way the alignment will tell the story.
