VXT cutting edges not wearing evenly.

    Just installed my new wing extensions and noticed that the plow cutting edge is not wearing evenly.
    The passenger side outside edge is 4 3/8" and the inside is 4 1/2"
    The drivers side outside edge is 5 1/2" and the inside is 5"
    I do spend alot of time plowing with it angled to the right, would that cause this type of uneven wear?
    I do not do any commericial plowing just my families/friends large driveways and easement roads which are blacktop and concrete.
    Any thoughts or ideas will be appreciated.

    Your putting more pressure on the one side and its wearing it down a little faster

    Thanks Grandview.
    I guess I will have to start plowing more with it angled to the left to even the wear.

    An inch seems like a lot difference in wear, you sure the A frame isn't tweaked?

    I have verified that the A frame is not tweaked/bent.
    But I have been plowing the same driveways and roads the same way, same direction with the plow angled to the right for the past 3 years.
