Tires are one of the most important parts of your RV, and it’s important to take care of them. Should RV tires be off ground? That said, not many people know when tires should be completely off the ground. Here we will break down what causes this problem and what you can do to avoid it!
RV tires should never be left on the ground because doing so can cause an uneven distribution of weight while driving or riding. This will cause issues with steering that make for a dangerous and uncomfortable ride.
Tires that are left on the ground for extended periods of time can begin to warp. This is because the weight of the RV causes an uneven distribution of pressure on the tire. As a result, when you take it off the ground you’ll find that your tires are not perfectly round and do not conform to your rims as tightly as they normally would. This issue becomes especially noticeable when driving at high speeds or hitting bumps in the road.
Unfortunately, this issue is irreversible. However, you can take steps to prevent it. When you aren’t using your RV, make sure that your tires are up and off the ground. You may want to remove them completely from your trailer or storage unit so that they do not take on any additional weight over time.
