Anyone have issues with tire wear? My 2016 Explorer Sport is a few months over 1 yr old with about 12k miles and i have 2 of 4 tires with significant wear on the outer edge. Not alignment, it tracks fine. I can appreciate front tires wearing from taking turns too quick but mine need to be replaced at this point with only 12k miles. My neighbor has one as well and he also has tire wear issues. Curious if anyone else is having issues. Also curious if anyone has put different tires on theirs, and if so, which ones??

I think its the brand of tire from factory, total garbage! I have 16k over 2yrs on mine and driven like a baby. Still makes no difference on wear after first reading about tire wear a year back.

Tires from the Manufacturer are not the same as the normal retail model. They are engineered to be quiet and smooth so you buy the car. They don't care about the longevity of it.

I had a similar problem before but I've decided to stick with aftermarket tires. I got my first aftermarket tires from 4WheelOnline and I never experience immediate tire wearing. I was also able to improve fuel economy and reduce tire noise with the new setup.
