Default Passenger Front Tire Uneven Wear

My Passenger side front tire is suddenly wearing really fast on the outside. All the other tires are in good shape but the passenger front is wearing really fast on the outside and the treads are wearing faster on the back of some of the treads than on the front of the tread. Have any of you had this problem?What was the cause?
Regards,Gary

It can be as simple as low or high tire pressure, or can be wheel + tires not balanced , but a misalignment is usually the culprit.

I'm not sure what you mean by "back of some of the treads", but it sounds like a toe-in problem. Get a front end alignment check and rotate that tire to the rear for better handling.

wheel alignment should do the trick. I had the same problem on my driver side front tire.

I agree on an aligmnemt being needed; then rotate front & rear so you can "even them out"...
