2018 Skeeter FX21 tandem axle trailer, front left tire is worn down to the belts on the inside of tire, all other tires still look new...What would cause this?

I have had a heavy equipment trailer do this and the leaf springs had twisted just a half inch causing premature tire wear.

You have one of these problems-
Bad Wheel Bearings (too much play)
Bent axle (most likely)
Problems with leaf springs, shackles or hangers (if it is not a torsion axle, it looks like there is a torsion axle mount bracket there)

My new Coyote trailer is about to undergo a warranty repair for that same problem.

Either loose / bad wheel bearings or a bad bushing in the torsion axle.
