So.. I’m taking my car to San Diego this weekend, from AZ, about 700 miles round trip. I have noticed since I bought the car(10k miles ago) that I have this strange wear, I did have the car re aligned. This is also the same noise I hear a weird suspension noise, but my car has no play in the suspension, I can bounce up and down on it and nothing. Is this cupping? Will this tire last 700 miles in AZ heat? Dealer said they found nothing wrong with suspension when they did my alignment, but I find it weird that it’s the same side I hear the noise on. I would get new tires, but want to wait until I figure out why my tire looks like this. All of them have kind of the same pattern, but this one’s inner portion is really worn. Any ideas?

Yes it'll last.

It's cupping for sure and either a damper is bad or you've got a bad bushing or bearing somewhere.
