Hey guys. I'm getting some weird tire wear. I have a 2010 JK Rubi with a 2.5" Rock Krawler lift. I've had the lift on for about 4 years. These are 35x12.5 MT Baja MTZ P3s that I have had on for a little over a year. They have been running fine, but I started getting some death wobble on a drive home from the beach. It didn't start until I was 1.5 hours into a 2 hour drive.
It happens around 35 mph. If I load the suspension, usually by swerving a bit, as I accelerate to about 40 it goes away. The Stabilizer is fine, I can't seem to find any play in any of the joints or attachment points, and everything is tight.
Last night I thought I'd try a tire rotation just to see if it would matter. When I was moving them, I noticed the weird wear in the pictures on the front driver tire. There was a little on the passenger side, but nowhere near as bad. This is in the middle of the tread. The wobble is still there after the rotation, but a fair bit better. Before I had to slow way down sometimes because it would become pretty severe.

Coming to JKO to get educated on politics is like a marathoner watching the Special Olympics to get technique pointers.
