Default I hate tires

I had Goodyears on the rear and developed a bubble in one. Less than 1 years old, 3.5k miles. I had the Hankook spare installed and got a new spare for the roof.

I noticed the inner dual (Goodyear) is running 15 degrees hotter than the outer after three hours at 60/65 or so. (115 degrees outer, 130 inner) On the other side they were the same, 115 degrees or so. Outside temp in the low 70's. Last time I had an inner running hotter it blew out. I don't remember the temp spread last time. Pressures are the same (105), OK for a 12R22.5. Might go up to 110, but it takes forever with my compressor.

Probably should swap out the inner for the new spare and stick the old one on the roof for emergencies. I wonder if 3.5k is too many miles to be paired with a new tire?

I hate tires.

I'm glad you posted this. I've just started watching my TPMS System on this trip and have been looking at strange things like inside tire hotter than outside tire, things of that nature.
Besides a tire losing pressure or being extremely over temperature I'm not sure what else to be watching for.

Mark , I look for inconsistencies, and listen for beeps I also noticed the front tires were getting up to 145 psi , way to high for me . This was after about 400 miles or so of the 600 mile day hahaha you shouldn't worry about that my friend I let out 10psi after a 2 hr brake and now only hit 127 on the side with the sun setting and 125 on the other .

Keep the hate for the Goodyears, they deserve it.

One of these days I will start logging this data. All I look for now is something different from the rest. Like 3 out of four duals at 115, and one at 130.

I corrected my first entry to show 3500 miles, not 10k. Checked records and bought them last July.

Gardner in Pennsylvania tires have to be within 3/16th of each other to be paired together to pass state inspection. Maybe that will help.

I suppose a tire place might have a tool to check it, or the local DOT guy?
Are there specific symptoms to look for if they are out of tolerance? I don't see any weirdness on the tread surface.

I bought a combo tread depth and tire pressure gauge on amazon. Not too expensive.

I use a tire tread depth gage
http://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/v...ntent=10021750

it is not unusual for the inner dual to run slightly hotter and a few psi higher, the sun shine side can raise the temp & psi higher , ambient is the same both sides.

I hate tires.

Just a thought.. The inside dually may run hotter as hey are heated up by the drum brake more than the outside? The inside tire is basically wrapped all around that drum so all the heat dissipated by the drum hits that inner wheel.
