Exhaust heat and tire temps
So in the nearly 23,000 miles I have logged with my Rig I have been running a TPMS that also shows pressure and temperature. Temperature is a lead indicator of failure of a tire, and at 130F things can get bad quick, meaning tire failure.
Consistently, the inner dually on the passenger side registers higher temps than any of the other tires. During times when we are caught in high temperature areas and heavy traffic I have watched it hit 125F and higher on another occasion, which forced me off the highway to let things cool down.
Has anyone else noticed this and what are the thoughts on running exhaust wrap to make sure the heat goes out the tail pipe and not the whole length of the pipe?
