I have a 05 197 on a tandem axle trailer made by sport boat trailers. I understand that I will have scuffing on tires. The problem is that the two front tires are 50% worn on the inside, while all the others still have the new nubs on the inside of them. The trailer has under 9k miles in two years. Has anyone had any similiar problems, or does anyone know of any recalls?

There is obviously an alignment problem somewhere...............Without seeing pictures............I'm going to throwout 3 guesses...........
1) The front axle is towed-out
2) The front axle has too much camber
3) The weight of the boat is not equally distributed...........placing too much weight on the front axle..........resulting in too much camber....
Hope this helps.............
