Tires wearing on outside

The tires on my trailer are showing heavy wear on the outside of the tires. This is worst on the right hand side.

The tires are 205/75 14 Marathons. They have been kept at 50 PSI. The trailer was made Mar 2011. I don't know the tire date. There are no signs of sidewall cracking.

The axles are Dexter.

Does this indicate bent axles?

I need new tires for sure.

Thanks
Peter

What I read is it could be out of alignment axles if a duel axle trailer or worn suspension parts.

A suspension shop can check the alignment real easily.

Question Tire Wear

Recommend axle alignment check for sure. Had to go on the hip and pay for alignment of my dual axle TT. Cost me a couple hundred bucks but was worth it. I have a TST Tire Monitoring System for my trailer tires and noticed that the right side tires run a bit higher temps than the left. My stove, refrigerator, and food pantry and rather large storage compartment are on the right side and I think it is a weight issue.

For a 2011 TT, which probably came off the line in Oct 2010 the tires should not be showing any cracking or deterioration. Is it high mileage trailer? Would like to know how you resolve the issue.
