Yesterday morning I had all six tires replaced with new Michelin XZA2 energy tires. I brought the motorhome home around noon and around 4:30 I noticed that the right curbside rear dual looked funny. Checked the pressure and of course all the air was out of the tire.
Wow I was mad at that point. $3400.00 and to have that happen kind of torqued me off. Aired it up to about 60psi and checked for leaks with soapy water and found the stem was leaking where it hooks to the air stem extension. Tightened it up and re aired the tire to 90 psi which is what the inflation/load table from Michelin says I should be at for the weight. Yes I had the motorhome weighed.
Since the tire was basically flat do you think it could have damaged the sidewall? It had air coming home and I looked at it when I got home and didn't notice anything so it lost the air the air in about 4 1/2 hours sitting there.
Concerned with it sitting down like that could have done something to the tire.
What would you do? Monitor it closely or take it back and demand a new tire. Hate to think it might have damaged the tire and I'm going to pay for it with a blowout down the road.
I would really appreciate your opinion.
