I have a JD 1050 4Wdrive.
The front tires are wearing uneven as the one side of the tred is wearing more than the other side as outside vs inside.
Here is the question.
How do I correct/adjust toe in/tow out - that is to say the slant of the tire back to normal or even straight tracking?
I rotated the tires which is a temporary fix but not a long time correction or cure.
Thanks in advance.

I am not sure on that model the old 2940 had a tie rod that could be turned like the top link on a 3pt hitch, the new 7405 has a treaded rod comeing from the steering cylinder.

Tractor tires are prone to wear on the outsides due to the scuffing from hard turns and the abrasiveness of the soil. I would just turn the tires around on the rims. Once a tire starts to wear it is nearly impossible to change the wear pattern.

Most of the John Deer front ends the tow out is controled by the tyerods. The camber is not adustable.

GO to JOHN DEERE and have them order you a shop manual and a parts catalog for that unit, yes it will cost you some bucks, but if you plan on doing your own work DO IT. it will be worth ever penny you spend on it,

JOHN DEERE has good manuals,

I have the shop manuals and or parts catalogs for all my JD equipment, one of the best tools I ever bought for them,

If I call the dealer ship we both have a picture to look at and can discuss the problem with intelligence,

Insted of it that do hicky with the thing amajig on it and does the whirrly thing, how do I work on it,

OR: it is item #36 in the parts catalog, with a number of xxxxxxxx, will that need to be replaced, oh OK thank you order me one and then send it out on the next trip to my area and put it in the parts box.

Camber isn't normally adjustable on farm tractors....camber is the left and right tilt of the wheel as viewed from the rear of the tractor.

I'm not sure why one tire would be wearing unevenly, unless it had a tire pressure difference or you constantly turned one direction or another while mowing...I'll defer to agmanto on this, as usual. haha.

The tires are wearing the way they are for severial reasons. One of these is that the tow in is wrong. The way you describe the wear one of the tye rods is too shourt. John Deer have two ways to adjust the tow in . You can remove a bolt on the tye rod and move it to another grooove or you can screw it out a little bit. The camber is set by the manufacture and the only way it can be changed is to bend the axiel.

Hey.

Could have worn wheel bearings. Too much toe-in would cause outside of tires to wear prematurely.

I jsut went to JD parts on the web, https://jdparts.deere.com/
Any way I can not see any shim kit to adjust the front 4 wheel drive axle,
but since I do not have a shop manual I do not know how to or if there is any adjustments, be sided toe in and out, with all the drive line and gears my guess is there is not any adjustment.
the simple thing to do is call the JD dealer and talk to the shop foreman and see if there is anything one can do or if there is possible defect or miss machining that warranty could be needed on.
could jsut be a bad tire also.
