Hi Barb. I have the same tires on my 92 Toyota 4x4 w/ the same problem. Your GY guy is right. If you lightly run the palm of your hand over the tires, you'll feel the cupping. It has been expplained to me that it's because of improper balancing. Since I've dirven nothing but 4x4s most of my life, I think it has something to do with the suspension of a 4x4. I religiously rotate my tires every 5,000 mi. No matter the tire, the same thing condition seems to appear at around 30,000 mi. If there's a tire that can avoid the cupping, I'd like to know about it. Let me know if you hear anything.
