Tire wear after 1900 miles, Feathering.
 
Anyone else having this issue, I have 1900 miles on my '11 Overland with 20" wheels and when I rub my hand down the edge of the tire there is a low spot and a sharp edge on each tread block.

I would not be so sure about the alignment. In my experience with these Foterias that's what they seem to do, but usually at higher milege. Are you getting any noise or vibration? I just took the Goodyears off my Overland because of a slight vibration between 68 and 73 and now I have the Michelin but still seem to have the problem at times between 65 and 70.

No noise or vibration, seems like the steering wheel is off to the right a little, gonna call Monday to get it in for an alignment.

Won't hurt to get it checked... What tire pressure are you running?

What did the vibration noise sound like??

Was it like whoom whoom whoom with a steady foot on the pedal and them a persistent whooooooooom when you let go of the pedal?

It didn't sound like anything. It was a vibration, a slight shimmy in the steeing wheel.
