Just 1 tire...

What else could cause this besides bent axle (really hoping not the axle)
It is the rear axle driver side.

By chance do you back into say your drive way from the say direction every time?? I was doing this at my new house (sealed and pea graveled street), and I wore out tread on one tire fast. Changed up how I back in, and rotate my tires periodically. No longer an issue.

I had that same problem. My rear wheels both wearing on the inside edge with the left wearing more than right. I took it to a truck frame shop and ended up needing both axles rebent and aligned.

Mine seems to be just the left tire.

Bent at the spindle? While you have the wheel off the ground I would spin it and look for a wobble ( bent wheel ) check the lug nuts/studs. I would also check the wheel bearing adjustment ( loose? ). These are just guesses, but with the wheel off the ground Id give it a shot.

Yup, looked for wobble, nothing. Lug nuts/studs all good. Bearings were repacked before I hit the road.
I drove 300 miles yesterday with the spare on. It's hard to tell but the tire looks fine so far. Maybe the other tire was defective??
I have another 400 miles to go. Will see how the spare looks then.

When a tire wears like that on the inside rib then one of these problems is the cause:
.. axle camber bad
.. bent spindle on that side
.. wet bolt bushings, shackle bar holes elongated

So I just traveled 700+ miles on the spare and the tread looks fine, so I'm at a loss. Maybe just a defective tire? IDK!

We had one tire wear that way - it was a broken leaf spring.

You can confirm bent spindle or axle by placing a "Camber tool" across (up and down) on the wheel

I checked suspension and leaf springs, all looks good. When I had the wheel off the ground I was turning it and it appeared to turn straight. It looks like it is riding straight when on the ground as well, but not sure. Also, wheel had no wobble when off the ground either.
Wheel bearings were just recently repacked.

Tire wear

Unless you have calibrated eyeballs you need to confirm camber with a gauge. Once you know the actual Camber you can then decide what needs to be done to bring the wheel into spec.

You can eyeball the axle at the center looking for evidence of positive camber .. or lay a straight edge across it looking for an upward bow at the center of the axle

If you see that then ( while not exact and precise ) it at least tells you your axle does in fact have postive camber ..

Which is what you want to see loaded or unloaded.. typically if you see that then your tire wear should be even from edge to edge

Its a simple check image after every arrival point and setup.ltakes seconds to tell me that things are ok..

If however you have inside tire tread wear and you see evidence of some postive camber then most likely the spindle on the axle is bent

Toe out on a trailer is either loose or worn wheel bearings or a bent axle.
Over time , the front of the axle actually gets peened by small stones . This will cause the front surface of the axle to grow in length causing the axle to bend . This bending action can also cause the toe out condition.
