    So I got a flat tire on my boat trailer on the way home the other day and I realized that it is the inside tread on the tire the rest of the tread is perfectly fine. So I guess the question is how do I align the tire on my trailer

    You almost never burn thru the tread on a trailer tire before it blows. It's the sun and sitting that kills them.

    2 axle? Measure between the hubs, front to back and diagonally.

    How many tires have that wear pattern.

    If only one tire looks like that it's probably the tire.That tire looks old.

    It’s from sitting. You would have most likely have delaminated soon.

    Could be a bent axle... they usually have a little positive camber built into them....looks like you have negative camber

    Upon further review
    (pictures on my phone have a date)
    I guess I've had the boat longer than I thought. May of 2015. Guess it is just time for new tires

    You could have an overloaded trailer, have you looked at the trailer when it is empty? Does the tire stance change significantly empty? It could be a tired axle.

    leaf springs or torsion? Is the hub loose? Worst case ^^^, its the axle and that spindle is not true to the other side. You can build a big "caliper" with galvanized pipe, etc., and measure between the rims: front, back, top, bottom.

    When it comes to trailer tires your basically screwed either way.... nobody likes forking over the loot to replace them...... but the way I look at it is, u can be mad that u replaced them at your leisure every
    3-5 years and that is that.... or you can be mad when u replace them on your way to or for a potential fun trip and be extra pissed.... from the pic u need new rubber
