You have that right, I treated my scales like jewerly as opposed to the officers treating them like they didn't care. I saw some of them twisted like pretzels at the DOT repair/certification center.

Weighing RV's sure opened a lot of folks eyes to why tires tires failed in some areas on the rig. Or why the truck didn't feel right when towing, or other handleing issues.

I found some threads out there where others have went to bigger wheels and a stronger Load Range J type tire. Not sure if this is a viable option. I donít know if axel is bent or not true, but admittedly donít know how to check that. The other side tires operate fine so I think it is fine.

We just finished an 800 mile found trip and the tire went in the last 10 miles. The left rear blew again and wrapped itself around the axel. I can not tell if it is tread separation or what kind of failure.

It seems the slide out side is the issue and I am wondering if it is a weight issue, too low psi, need bigger sturdier wheel/tire?

GVWR 11,580
CCC 3065

Any ideas? Thanks
Intend to think out of the box, if you have the clearance get 16Ē wheels an put on a good set of LT235/85-16E, yes LT truck tires!
Our 2005 Copper Canyon 293FWSLS has a of GVWR 12,360# the LTís have a weight rating of 3,042# ea., that is a total of 12,168# on a 11,580# GVWR, that less 20% For pin and you have a lot extra capacity.
