I hope you have figured this out. The posts are very informative. I have a '04 Journey with 26k on it now and my tires were wearing very well, and then just prior to a recent 4700 mile jont, I went from 110 psi in all tires to what the Michelin table said for my xrv 22.5 255 80's was for each axle after I weighed it. My weights were very similar to yours...it's ablut the same rig. I was ammazed to see the same wear you described after the trip. The ride was better but at what cost?

Tire "cupping"

IMHO manufacters use the lower preasure for a softer ride. My experience
at least 105 psi for 22.5 tires will make the tires last longer and reduce sidewall problems and drive better. The ride will be a bit rougher.

FYI I have now put 3,000 more miles on the coach since I took the pressures back up to 100 psi, and the wear areas have not got any worse. So I will not be putting less than 100psi in these tires from now on, regardless of what my weights are.
Good luck,

Hi,
I don't think your problem is tire pressure at all, in fact I had that problem on my Michelin tires and it was tire balance. I suggest you get your tires balncad at a good tire dealer. The last time i had mine balanced they spin balanced them on the vehicle which is the best way to do it. It could also been that you hit something and the wheel is out of round. The last tire dealer told me the best wheels to have are aluminum as steel wheels sometimes get out of round, I have one and it is in my spare.

Get the front tires spin balanced and after you replace that bad tire, do not balance the tire with the cupps in it.

Enjoy,

Goodyear's opinion:

Expert opinion by:

Tim Miller has been with Goodyear for over 30 years. He spent 8 years as a tire design engineer before taking positions as a technical representative to original equipment customers (Freightliner, Paccar, Volvo and Mack) and later as a technical rep to several large commercial tire customers (Penske, UPS and Yellow Freight). After 5 years in commercial tire sales (account executive to national account fleets), he returned for a second stint in the commercial tire marketing department.
