tires/wheels/axel issue??

bought our TT in November. jayco jay flight 26bhs 2010. double axel.
I noticed when backing the camper into my drive way, the tires look uneven, almost as a tire is going to pop off. I don't know if this is normal but it's pretty unnerving. at first I thought it was that the tires needed air, but it's still happening. one side is worse then the other.

any feedback appreciated. thanks.

That's a normal and natural occurrence. One tire is twisting against the other. Will happen anytime that you make hard turns forward or backward. Especially noticed on blacktop or concrete surfaces.

Agree with what is said on this being normal. All being said, I would make efforts to avoid the extreme turns when possible because this places alot of stress on your spring shackles. You don't want to break one of those.

Totally normal. Once your done maneuvering, just pull straight forward and backward to get them straight again...

totally normal, they can really flex at times. This is also why you cannot use car/truck rims and tires on your TT, as they cannot handle the loads.
