High tire temp on toad

Has anyone had issues with the blast from the diesel exhaust causing the the tire temperature in your toad's trailing front tire to rise significantly? The right front tire in my Jeep Liberty sits right behind my Dutch Star's exhaust pipe - the tire is running between 122 and 134 degrees with the ambient air temp close to 100. I understand failure won't happen until the 185 range but this can't be good.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks!

Tom

absolutely, my passenger side dolly and car rear tire always much hotter than drivers side, monitored car tire off dolly and normal temps always same as drivers side.

I see a similar sort of thing with my TST TPMS sensors, but we try to avoid 100 degree conditions so I've never seen temps quite that high. One thing to remember is that the temperature is being measured by TPMS sensor which is external to the tire. It's measuring the air temperature around the tire and not the actual temperature of the air in the tire. It's useful for getting a sense of whether or not a tire is overheating (maybe because a brake is dragging) but its measurement is not an accurate assessment of the temperature of the tire. So I wouldn't get all that worked up about your readings; the tire itself is probably considerably lower in temperature.

Yes and think about how it also heats up the trans fluid.

good point

Joel;

Good point about measuring the surrounding area (I have TST sensors) - the thing that isn't out of whack is the pressure - it's still okay @ 36 psi.

Thanks!

Tom

I don't remember exactly but it seems the left front tire runs about 20 degrees higher than the passenger side front. Yes, the exhaust is on the drivers side so that exhaust passes down that side of the tow car and presumable heats that tire.
