Which of 6 tires is the most important

Just found out that the passenger side inner tire is the most critical one to keep properly inflated. Also critical is where to not store propane tanks. This video explains it.

My vote your fronts are the most important.

X2. Passenger inner rear? They ALL need to be properly inflated. I'm not even going to watch that video. But wait-it's on the internet so it MUST be true!

Oh come on, go ahead and watch.😳 It's a cute video and the message is to properly inflate ALL your tires.👍

But my vote would have to be that the left steer tire is most important. Any blow out is serious but a steer tire blow out will potentially lead you either into a head on or off the road on the right. I've seen the result of a blown steer tire and it ain't pretty.

The video is worth a view if nothing more than to see what a rear blow out could do to the adjacent basement bins (her friends RV).

Pippi is well meaning. Her penny covered counter project was interesting.

Safe travels

I give her credit for trying to help but I think she is wrong on numerous different subjects she talked about.

I would say fronts are the most important. Loosing either of those often times the RV can end on its side or at least be difficult to control. Lose one of the rears and it can easily put the RV on a diet however typically it doesn't result in a complete loss of control.

In my career of OTR driving I have loss a tire in every tire position at one time or another. I will say none of them were so unmanageable to the point of losing control. I would say that losing a steer tire is the most radical and hardest of all to control but not impossible. Most RV'ers don't get the safety training they need to understand the dynamics that happen when a tire blows, especially a steer tire. I would recommend everyone get some type of training on handling "their individual type" of vehicle. Each type presents a different way to react when a tire blows in different positions and only takes a split second to lose control if the wrong technique is used.

The inside wheels run hotter because they are over the brakes, even more so if they are steel with outer aluminum wheels.

I recently put on new tires and replaced the inoperative rubber valve stem extensions with a set of dual dynamics crossfires. Their demo video explains it pretty well.
