Default Tires cupping

The front tires on my 2010 Hemi Ram are cupping on the outside of each tire. Could this be caused by the tie rods? Are any 2010's included in the tie rod recall? They are cupped enough I can actually hear them as I drive down the road. Any other 2010's have this problem?

I picked up my 2010 big horn a few weeks ago and submitted a build request to dodge. after all the info of what it came with, there was a Recall section. This is what was listed.

K17 REPROGRAM HVAC CONTROL HEAD & INSP./REPL. ACTUATOR WARRANTY
09/17/2010 INCOMPLETE

K23 MOPAR FRONT BUMPER CORROSION WARRANTY 10/25/2010 INCOMPLETE

L04 OUTER TIE ROD ENDS WARRANTY 08/15/2011 INCOMPLETE

So I guess im off to the dealer when I get home from working out of state to get some stuff done.

Link for the request to see if yours had the recalls: http://www.dodge.com/wccsapp/universal/D/index.jsp?appStr=wccs&titleStr=Contact+Dodge&famil yStr=brand&franchise=D&actionURL=%2Fwccs%2Fbrand_f orms%2Fus%2Fwebform.jsp&promotion=null&category=U

Just type in Requesting build date in the briefly describe section. Should hear back from them in like 24-48 hours.

The 2010's are included in the recall, however you need an alignment to take care of your issue, the recall only covers a toe adjustment.

I know that my 10 is on recall for tie rods, but I havent had any issues yet. Cupping is usually from out of balance tires, bent suspension parts or really worn shocks. Do you go 4 wheeling with your truck? Have you hit anything, big pothole? Do you have a lift kit installed? Hows your tire pressure? I cant see you needing shocks (struts) already. You said its only on outsides, most times that would be a camber adjustment, but only if wear was even across the outside not cupped. Could you post a pic?

let me guess you probably have good year wrangler HP tires??? they are notorious for cupping. if you do, best bet would be to get better tires, and rotate them as required

Cupping is also caused by suspension angles, hence the alignment. I had minor cupping on mine, since alignment done, no cupping.
