I run 38 psi all day long and I don't have any uneven wear. And I would have noticed by now with the mileage that's on them.

See, that's what I had mine at. Right around 38. I lowered the rear PSI to 32ish and the fronts at 35 as suggested here. Hopefully that will abate some of the wear.

BTW these are goodyear F1 supercar tires 255zr18 ford racing wheels. I bought them as a package so I assume they're the right size for the wheel. Only mods are eibach sway bars.

I'd guess it's putting the wider tires on the rims.

I'm mentally picturing that doing so forces the tires to be more rounded in their profile, rather than squared-off and flat with the road.

That would have been nice to know way earlier.

I've been running 5+ psi more than recommended on a few cars for years and have never had this issue. It's not like I'm running 20 psi over, so calm down. 3 psi more isn't going to do anything.
