I bought 4 new tires for my trailer summer before last all at the same time. I don't pull the boat great distances so the tires all look brand new still, except for the left front. It is almost bald on the inside and looks almost perfect on the outside. Everything looks straight but I cannot figure out why the one tire is wearing so bad. It is not like I can do an alignment or something. anyone have anything like this happen. Any suggestions what might be wrong. Thanks.

I had a bent spindle once, and it wore the tire out super fast. I couldn't figure out how to measure the spindle, so I replaced the axle on a hunch, and voila. Call your trailer manufacturer, and ask who their axle supplier is. I did this, and for 80 bucks, they shipped me a new one to my door.
In my case, my wife clipped a curb, and it bent the front right spindle.

You could take it to a trailer shop and get an alignment done. If it's a bent spindle it might be replaceable. If not they just bend things until everything is pointing the same way.

I guess I will have to take it in and let someone look at it. Everything looks straight but sometimes these things are hard to see.
