    Unsure about tire wear.

    I bought a 2017 Sahara this past weekend. 17k miles on the ODO. Jeep appears flawless throughout, except for some interesting tire wear. Looks almost like chunks are missing from the tread. There doesn't seem to be any pattern to the wear. I'm not sure if they've just been ground down, or if theres a more sinister issue. I notice a slight pull to the right; something I didn't detect when I test drove. Any ideas? I'll rotate tires tomorrow and see if that helps things. I've attached pictures of the tread.

    Never had any issues with my 2012, so I'm worried.

    Little bit of rock chunking. No biggie. Just been on some rocky gravel or shale roads.

    Roger that. Hopefully the guy I bought it from didn’t nail anything big and throw the alignment off.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
