Steer Tires

We are running Bridgstone M844, 445/65r/22.5 ( LR:L) steer tires on our International 5500I 6x6's with Altec AH100 buckets. The problem we are having is the outside 3" of the tire wearing prematurely. Has anyone else run into this problem? If so, what was the fix.

Check your toe in, it should be no more than 1/8" total, this is very important when running wide tires. If it is only certain trucks, check to see how the driver operates, high speed cornering will also round the outside edge, faster if the tire pressure is down a little.
