Wondering if having all the weight for a side on a single wheel could exceed the wt limit on it. Jus thinking............
Oh yeah, I think your new wheels look great.
I do not know, anything is possible, I have thought about the cause quite a bit, but I am sure glad to have the new rims before heading out West !!!

Rob, good to hear Jayco stepped up even after out of warranty to resolve wheel issue.

Checking wheels is just one of the things we look at before departure.

Safe travels...

Wow, I cannot win

Coming through Phoenix AZ this week, our TST Low Pressure Alarm went off showing the Left Rear Tire on our Jayco Pinnacle was showing low pressure.
Verified with a tire gauge, sure enough it was low.
Put Spare Tire on, examined tire and did not see anything in the tire or any issue with the tire.
Stopped by a tire store and had them check the tire, the rim is leaking thru the side of the rim.
Contacted manufacturer of the Hi Spec, Heavy Duty Rims I installed when three of the factory installed Sendel stock rims failed last December.
Hi Spec sent warranty claim paperwork and a picture request.
I filled out the warranty claim paperwork and took the pictures and sent back to them the same day.
I got a response in just a few hours, they are shipping a replacement rim to our current location in California. Great customer service!!
I am baffled, I do not abuse the tires / wheels by hitting curbs and run all pressure and weights well within the specified range and always balance our tires.

Robert

I have always wondered if aluminum is a good material to make a wheel out of; aluminum seems much more likely to crack when bent a bit than steel. That said, the wheels on my last two trucks - which towed fifth wheels - have been aluminum and there have been no wheel issues.

Maybe trailer wheels which flex so much side to side as a trailer is maneuvered are just not appropriate for aluminum; perhaps especially so as the assembling company of a trailer looks for ways to save cost.

I am going to agree with this and go one step further to possibly link the G rated sidewalls as being another component. If you take the history of the issues and when they started there might be a correlation between the two. If you look at your tires under a backing turn or hard corner it's a sight to say the least. That said at 110 PSI those tires are going to flex very little so it's got to give somewhere.

At least your having good customer service experiences under these conditions.

I can't wait to test out my "Blow max" tires this season! Seriously looking at the Saliun's

I'm glad to hear you are getting good customer service Rob. You definitely have had more than your share of problems with wheels. I love my TST system as well as I'm sure you do.

I am surprised jayco didn't want the rim back wonder if it is a known issue. I had some suspension parts that I got from dexter they were really interested in getting the old parts back told me it was to learn wtf happened paid for all the shipping.

The replacement rims I bought direct were from Hi Spec wheel, I did not go through Jayco but Jayco did send me a reimbursement check for the replacement rims.

Hi Spec stepped up and shipped a new rim to me in California and sent return label for the defective rim to be shipped back.

Great customer service from both Jayco and Hi Spec Wheel Co.
