heat around wheel

Recommended Posts

I just got back from a long trip and monitored the tire with the TST monitor and most of the trip was cool but on the way back in Needles the temps were about 100 degrees and I stop to take some pictures and found two of the tires very hot. The tires facing the sunny side and all in general increased in temp quite a bit and when I got rolling the all better leveled out the sunny side is always a bit hotter but not the extreme I go while sitting on the hot pavement.

My rig has hub covers so heat isn't as evident from the outside so I have a Ratheon IR heat gun. To get temps on the right side, I go to the left side and shoot the back of the drums from underneath the trailer. You can see the red dot of the laser readily as it is in the shade.


I find temps in the 100 degrees f. What I'm looking for is a spike in the temp in 1 or more wheels.


If you are interested, I can provide the model of IR gun.
