Default Feathering issues with Stock Goodyear Wranglers

For those of you that have had issues with the stock Wrangler HPs...

I'm getting a set of Cooper Zeon tires installed tomorrow at my dealership, and I'm having the truck lined up at the same time. I had the truck lined up at 10k miles for free by the dealer as I complained about pulling to the left.

Anyway, I have 37k on these Wranglers and all of the tires are feathered, but the worst feathering is on the driver's side front. Now, if the truck is lined up correctly, this feathering either happens because:

1. The tires are just plain crap.
2. Suspension is worn.

My truck is highway driven 99% of the time. We had a bad winter this past year, but I can't recall whacking any potholes or anything rough enough that would have caused me to screw up tie rods, etc.

For those of you that had these feathering/cupping issues, did you find the same issues when switching to another brand of tires? Was it alignment? Worn suspension components?

These coopers weren't cheap and I'm going to press the dealer to really check the suspension bushings and what not, but I can't completely trust that that will be done. Any thoughts?
