Default x pattern wearing tires fast

so i have an 86 and its got the x pattern axle up front, ive had the truck for 4 months now and when i got it the tires were BRAND new (still had blue on letters) and in that 4 months the outside of my passenger side tires is nearly bald. what do i do to fix it so i dont have to buy new tires every 4 months. it is lifted also. ik that probably dosnt help the situation but im not gonna drop it down to stock height just to fix this. it has drop down brackets for the front lift, i dont beleive it has coil spacers. any help is appreciated

They are probably going to try and make you buy new tires, probably a good idea. Keep in mind a the tires wears uneven it becomes almost impossible to balance the tires creating a shake. I would check all the front end parts before hand just to make sure they don't try to run a fast one by you, ball joints, tie rods, etc.
