Wear pattern will tell the story but if you can find a Truck align shop they will usually do vans, of course it depends on the suspension type as some Jayco set ups have very limited adjustment and axles don't line up ......... but after all these years can't be too much out or they would have chewed out in short time.... a mild ATR tread in LT is better than a chunky tread for long life.............. unbalanced tyres can give the bearings and mounts a flogging if the are bad so pays to keep an eye on them ......

@Drover the tyres tread was fairly flat across the tyre but the tread varied up and down around the tyre
the van has probably done more than 50,000 K's so time for a new set.
5 new tyres for the van and 5 new for the ute sure adds up $$
it has the first version of Jay-tech suspension best riding van we have ever owned
would like to get all the wheels alignment checked just need to find somewhere

Early JTech suspension only had tow in out adjustment.plus many came with camber a mile out,not a lot
you can do anout that.as Drover said truck shops are the best bet.Our local aligment guys can not even do vehicles
correctly.!

thanks @BJM my aim is to find a truck alignment place
Pro-Axle in Campbellfield. They do Trucks, caravans, and all other vehicles. They're meant to be pretty good at what they do.
Or Advantage Caravan Repairs in Campbellfield. They're an authorised Jayco service and repair place. Good reputation and won many industry awards.
I'm calling them tomorrow about servicing my van and I know they do alignments.
