Burning rubber is fun until you need new tires! Some Toyota Tundra TRD Pro owners may have noticed that they’re chewing through tires faster than expected. If your Toyota Tundra TRD Pro tires seem to be wearing out too fast, you aren’t alone. 

The Toyota Tundra TRD could have a tire problem

If you spring for the rugged Toyota Tundra TRD Pro then you get a set of 20-inch Falken Wildpeak A/T3W tires. While they’re chunky, knobby, and provide plenty of grip, it’s easy to wear them out. 

One owner discovered that after 9,000 miles his thread was already down to the wear bars. They seemed to be wearing unevenly and the sidewalls appeared to have the most damage. But all-terrain tires should last roughly 40,000 miles. 

But this is a unique tire made for Toyota. They aren’t the same as the after-market Falken Wildpeak A/T3W tries because they have a less aggressive tread design. 

They could also have a softer tread to meet the auto manufacturer’s criteria for cost, comfort levels, noise levels, handling, and rolling resistance.

As far as the uneven wear, reportedly from MotorTrend, Toyota set some positive camber to the front suspension, causing the tires to look slanted. This may be responsible for the excessive shoulder wear. 

But the Falken and Toyota teams have been working to find a solution for the wearing issues. A few owners have brought their Tundra models in for service due to the excessive wear

Technicians responded by realigning the front suspension according to the updated specifications and replacing the Tundra’s tires. However, some owners have done this multiple times. 

While getting free tires is a nice perk, it’s not exactly a permanent solution if they still wear out faster than they should. Also, why isn’t the realignment helping? 

It might be a smarter move to invest in aftermarket tires. It might be a little more expensive but they could save you time and peace of mind in the long run. 

Also, the tires could be a little louder and impact the truck’s handling. But, the switch from standard to aftermarket tires shouldn’t have a noticeable impact on ride quality.
