Hey guys, so today while turning in a tight circle I noticed a rubbing like sound from my front right tire, when I went to check I noticed that the front right has a weird wear on the inside. Anyone know what this could be??

I checked for rubbing and there is no rub marks anywhere. And I also checked all the rods and they're all straight.

It seems to be like a road contact issue.. Could it be something with the diff?

It's also the top of each knob that is worn, the bottom ones are okay.

Check your alignment.

Wear pattern you picture is known as cupping.

Rotate those tires to the rear asap or wear them out and get better tires, G90 is a horrible tire.

Alignment is off.
7.50's shouldn't rub anywear. Are you certain your difflock is fully disengaged ?

It seems to not be doing it anymore, I engaged and des engaged the diff lock and reversed a bit and it seems to be back to normal.. Could I have done any damage to the drivetrain by driving it like that?
