Question about Cars & Trucks
If it is JUST the outside edge then the rear wheel camber is out of adjustment. If it is both the inside and the outside of the tire then it is low air pressure in the tire.

That's known as negative camber (positive camber would be if the top of the tire were leaning outward). This should be able to be fixed with an alignment as long as the suspension isn't damaged (ie, a bent control arm due to an accident or a hard hit on a curb, pothole, etc).

SOURCE: rear tire wear
This truck has a live rear axle, meaning there is nothing to adjust back there. Have you hit somthing? The wear being on the outside of the tire would indicate that the tire is pointing in to the center of the vehicle. Sight down each of the rear tires to the front tires and see if it appears tif the rear axle is skewed to one side. Possibley bad locating arm busings or somthing bent.

Align the truck, sound like the camber is out of adjustment the upper control arm is holding it out too much, or your lower ball joint is messed up and lets it tuck in. The tie rods on that truck have nothing to do with it. Ball joints are like 40 bucks each for a good one, and an alignment is like 50. Is this a 4wd truck? If you have torsion bars make sure they are not too tight, when you hit dips its gonna distort the tire to the ground.

If the wear is exactly even in the middle, it is from overinflated tires. If it has patches of wear, even in the center but not consistent, it is because it is misaligned or something is loose where the tire gets held( the struts or the bushings)
