Tires

I just noticed that the rear tires on both sides of my Voltage 3600 have completely worn out . The other tires look fine. About 20,000 on them. 10 ply. I am very anal on the pressure so that can't be it. I may be a little nose high, very little. What would cause them to do that?
Thanks
SR

I think Axle out of alignment with the rest of the trailer. maybe you should check to see if something has come loose underneath.

How are they worn? Inside, outside, all over? Could be alignment, load, etc.

Check out the Voltage FB page. I also have a V. After checking the FB page found several including me who are having issues with Axles, springs and Hangers. The suspension system on the Voltages seem to be straight up CRAP! I’m looking at around $1500 worth of repairs in around a month.

It was the leaf spring hanger on the right side rear. It broke off. I was on the road in Jackson WY. at Big O waiting my turn for tires when I saw that the hanger was broken. The big guy was looking out for me that day. There was a welding shop around the corner and he had it fixed in a couple hours. I still had time to get my tires and get back on the road. We found a place in Rock Springs WY. that did alignments had it checked and all was good.

Just like any vehicle, it is very important to rotate tire positions every 6-8000 miles to get best wear patterns. Especially on a heavy tri-axle trailer. Always check which tires are wearing, and which look better. I burnt trough my first set of tires in 12000 miles on my 3905 Voltage. Very heavy trailer with 2 Ultra Classic Harley Davidson's in the garage on long runs from Canada to Arizona. Back tires always wear harder on loaded toyhauler. Now running 14 Ply Pro Meter steel radials. Very heavy outside rib on these tires and 110 PSI required. Now have 30,000 miles on them with more to go.

I dumped the ST tires and put LTs on my 3950. I know that won't help with OPs problem, but it cut way down on wear.

This is a photo from my old Victory Lane (predecessor to the Voltage) with a broken spring hanger
