John -

Which side of the road are you riding/driving on?  If the right side,
then it's likely the crown of the road that's wearing the outside branch
of the LH shoe.  Rather than make a shoeing correction, I'd rather make
a riding correction, since the crown of the road affects every joint
from the ground up, and stresses the LH leg differently than the RH.
