My truck only has like 210k miles on it, so its barely broken in.
inside of the drivers side tire there was like a 12 inch long bald patch along the edge

and 210 is alot, my truck is at 220 now and it's getting to that point now where its constantly having issues, used to be a fleet truck for a contracting company so I know it wasnt taken care of

Ah, so not even a full lap? That could be a whole different issue then... You might want to make sure that it spins true. If it were spinning out of round, with even a little wobble in and out, you could be using the middle of the tire only half of the time, the outer and middle for a 1/4 lap and mostly inner on the remaining 1/4. The 3/4 on the mid and outer would wear much slower than the inner 1/4 even if the camber was correct. Add a little more camber or a bent spindle (if its 2wd) and you make it even worse on the inner.

But, to get it to wobble like that you might have some serious problems, and most likely should feel it in the steering. More serious things would be like the spindle bearings being shot, or the wheel being out of round or cracked. Something as simple as the wheel being installed on with something jammed between it and the flange could do it too, or it getting torqued on so that it left a gap essentially like something was stuck there.

As for my truck, it might be a lot of miles if it weren't a diesel, but its a Cummins, so its barely broken in. And the rest of it is so simple (2001 model) that you really can't break it. Though one day i probably will get a 97 or so Cummins diesel with a manual box, so that when the zombie wars eventually start and civilization stops i know my truck will be able to run forever.

I'd like to be in a little better shape for the zombie apocalypse. And live somewhere else too. There is enough white trash here that already looks like they may be the undead that I would have to be even more cautious than would already be necessary.

I saw a guy at Walmart last night that I went to elementary school with who looked rather zombie like. Almost like he had rubbed ashes over his whole body, including into his eyes. I'm pretty sure it's years of hard drug abuse, just not sure what would turn your skin to a shade of gray.

brains...

Panda, I am having similar problems out of my Mazda, but mine is a camber issue. Being a former work truck, I would check for a bent rim.

Simonized is still not working for me. Can someone post the link they use?

Maybe Simon buggered your account? What I would do is delete your cookies for Simonized and try again. Maybe flush your DNS cache too.

Everyone alright in there?

Also, flushing DNS didn't work. How do I delete cookies from a site I can't load?

I can access simonized from a different computer, just not my office one. Really strange.

You need to clear your cookies. They are *.txt files on your P.C.

Otherwise you may have accidentally blocked it with an Ad blocker or modifying your HOSTS file. You router or Windows Firewall may also have an exception.

Cleared cookies, still the same problem. Simon has clearly IP blocked me

Not blocked with ad blocker and I havn't touched a hosts file since I have no idea what that is. I use Firefox, but it's not loading with scummy IE explore either.

7. But nothing changed at my end as far as I'm aware between it working and it not working.

I would like to agree with you, but that is obviously not the case. The trick is to find out what has been changed between point A through Z.

Have you tried surfing there with a free proxy?

There is a chance you were IP blocked. Not that Simon would have intentionally, but it is not unheard of for a range of IP addresses to get blocked by the host because there was unwanted activity coming from similar IP addresses.
