Default Ram Tire wear

my 2012 Dually eats front tires (well just one this time)
I recently took a 2400mile trip and in that time it ate a front tire on the outside.
I`ve had it at the dealer and a trusted mechanic for alignments it will be 4 times now in 4 years .
Anything else I can do ?

What's been done to the suspension? Any upgrades/ replacements?
Is the alignment always out of whack when taken in for service? 2 or 4 wheel alignment?

Was the wear even and smooth or scalloped (bumpy)?

Been many write ups over the years with same issue over most all the dually's. There are different opinions but most indicate it comes from the dual wheels try to go straight

I looked at a 2017 3500 and really liked it , the options were insane, ac seats massage etc , very impressed but mine hasn`t skipped a beat in 5 years,besides 2 tires very reliable. . the death wobble and engine issues, the huge roof leaking and all the bells and whistles scare me on the fords.

Interesting.

Did not know that but why I was wondering if towing, because that would make truck want to try to stay straight (ie: push) when turning also.
