Strange front tyre wear
looking for a little input before I grab for the tool kit. Front tyre fitted about 18 months ago, little under 6K miles, I try and keep the pressures right front and rear 42/48, tyres are Metzler's.
When I look at the profile of the tyre it looks like I've only been going round right handers, as all the wear is on that side. I've just done a 400 Mile round trip fully loaded, Other half, camping gear, kitchen sink and 9 pairs of shoes.
Now I know the tyre should last 7-9 k, but does this sound like a fork problem? I've not dropped it yet, and I've not bumped into anything, even lightly. I have the tyre I removed before I did a 3K mile trip a while back, and didn't want to have to change tryes during the trip, I could put that on and see if I get a similar wear pattern. Ideas please.
