I don't recall, as I've been parked for about 6 weeks.

I use an infrared temp gun to check my tires during a trip.

I'll try to remember to post my findings when I leave in a couple of weeks.

Interesting. I have wondered about this since an inside dual blew, and when I changed tires the wear on the inside dual was more on the inside than the outside. One theory I have is that the axle bends or flexed and the inside dual gets more weight than the outside one.

IMHO, the axle doesn't bend, although I don't have any facts as to why the inside dual is more trouble prone than the outside dual.

A friend who maintained the tractor trailer car carriers for the nearby Chrysler plant, agreed that the inside dual was the one tire they had the most trouble with.
