What would cause this odd wear on only the outer tread blocks? Inner tread blocks are smooth/round. These are the only two tires on the trailer that show this type of wear.

I read mismatched pressure or diameter.

Out of balance AND under inflated. It's a combination of both:

Here.

It is a combination of under inflation and cupping.

Cupping is caused by being out of balance (or) a result of bad shocks, bad struts. Read here. This explains a lot more.

What kind of trailer is this? Semi? Tandam axle? duals? Spread? Looks like your dragging the tires through right turns.

Took RV for tires and had balanced. Did not drive RV for long time and ended up at another shop to have checked due to vibration. Guy comes back in office with a huge handful of wheel weights and asks who balanced my tires as they have absolutely no idea what they are doing! I know they were my weights as I had painted rims and they had paint on them, all of them.

Use this shop exclusively now for alignments and such, RV will not fit in bay so they align it in the parking lot. Also do tire shaving for out of round
tires and they are reasonably priced. Alignment is $59
