"Tire rotation question"

Si I used Tundra last year, had brand new tires when purchased. After 6000miles I had them rotated at one of the bigger tire shops in the country. about 5000 more miles I had extreme wear and cupping truck rode like #####. So I took them to be rotated at the other big shop, guy came out and said they are a directional tire and whoever rotated them had tham running backwards causing extreme wear. Probably cost me 20,000 miles of life.
Should I go back to the first shop and tell them they owe me new tires? 35" mud tires

Maybe four for the price of 3 on your next set.

Man......that's a tough one. I'd be pissed. Def go back to the first tire store and tell em what happened. See what they can do for you. Strange how they didn't know they were directional.

When they rotated them they must have swapped fronts to fronts and back to backs?

Usually x the fronts and bring the rears forward. X'ing the fronts changed the direction.

Directional tires mounted wrong will cause very poor wet traction. But more wear? No.

Wheel balance, front end alignment, inflation pressure, or doing donuts....those would affect wear.

What tire are we talking about? Have you had the front suspension checked out? Ball joints and such...
