Has anybody had trouble with the steering on a 1460 getting where you put new tires on it and it eats them off before the end of the season? I put new ones on 2 years ago about half way thru the year and by the time we parked them in the barn for the winter u could not tell it. They made it thu last year (suprise) and now they look like racing slicks. I was wondering if you can fix this on the rear end needs gone thru and how much it costs. Thanks Farmerson

Sounds like the toe-in is not set correctly, especially if the combine does not see much road time. Pavement will eat them up faster than almost anything.
Toe-in will usually show up as wearing fairly evenly all the way across the tire. Camber (non-adjustable on the combine, would require replacing parts) will wear tires on the sides of the tread.

It sees an amount of road time we farm 25 mile in any direction of us. I need to take it in to the local dealer and have some other stuff fixed on it so I will have them look at (or fix) the problem. Thanks for your help and sorry I did not reply sooner we got in the fields working ground and I finally got a chance now that it rained to get on.
