Took truck to old school alignment shop and he stated that the toe looked out and will cause this issue. Adjusted and seems to be getting better. Going to replace tires soon and looking at the Uniroyal Cross countries. Of course the dealer and another alignment shop stated it was GTG. Guess time will tell...

In regard to my earlier post I put 12 000 miles on my Good Year Fortera tires before first tire rotation. Front tires did not show any cupping or inside edge wear at all. It seems like the toe adjustment (closing) really made the difference as if the toe was ok before adjustment then now I should have a wear problem on outside edge on the front tires. Can't see any sign of that either.
Just for info. The Forteras are very good tires for my Tahoe. I can highly recommend them if someone is looking for good tires to replace those Duelers.

Time did tell! Old school alignment shop did the trick and put a set of TOYO cross county HT on and they are soooooooo quiet!! 3K on tires and no defects or noise yet and don't expect any. The Brigestones were indeed crap! Looks like the toe had to be churched up even after the front end was within specs..
