the middle tread pattern has a dip in it on my driver side tire. It's the only one that has it. Any idea what can cause this?

My tread looks like this =~===~===~==~ If you get the gist of it.
= tread pattern
~ dip in tread

If it's the center, it could be over-inflated, but if it's uneven, have you checked your alignment and made sure that everything is properly torqued?

i know that worn out shocks can cause "feathered" treadblocks and sometimes the symptoms that you described. maybe look that direction? leaking shock? bent shock?

It's called cupping......check the shock on that corner, it's caused by a bad shock
