Does the 440 lbs more weight on the passenger side Cause any concern? He said the wife wasn't in the rig which would add a Little MORE weight to the passenger side. Would that imbalance cause any issues and should he look to shift some weight to driver side?
The video Michelin puts out concerning tire pressures makes note that after you have your weights, take the highest weight per axle (regardless of the side) and adjust the tire pressure by that weight.

My understanding is one side will always be heavier than the other and in my case my passenger side may have more weight but seems not to be a BIG concern as long as you have your pressures right.

It's not perfect but my weights are not too far off, AND, my wife wouldn't bat an eye to your comment. She's maybe a buck 25 tops.

LOL - sensitive subjects sometimes ��

I figured 500lbs more weight on either side wouldn't be an issue but new to this myself so wanted to make sure

So after I adjusted my tire pressures per the Michelin website charts, I had a quick chat session with a Michelin technician. Gave him all of my exact weights and he verified the pressures I set them at were correct. I even told him about seeing some bulging at the bottom of the front tires by the treads now that these pressures had been changed and he mentioned that is normal as well.

I'll be checking those weights twice a year going forward and adjusting pressures as I go. Now its on to the tire covers.
