Potential Causes for Uneven Tire Wear on Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer Y08107


Is there an adjustment for the wheels on a rack and roll trailer? Im getting abnormal wear in the tread on one side.


Expert Reply:

Uneven tire wear on a trailer, whether the Yakima Rack and Roll # Y08107 or an RV camper trailer, can occur for several reasons. The nature of the wear helps point to the cause.

For instance, if a trailer is overloaded beyond its weight capacity there will often be excess tire wear on the inside edges of the treads. This happens from the load on the trailer pushing down on the axle/spindles which exposes the inside edges of the tires to more road contact.

If only one tire shows the unusual wear that could indicate damaged/loose bearings, a bent spindle or some other alignment issue.

We do offer a set of complete replacement wheels as part # 8880157, replacement tire only as part # Y8880282 and inner tube only as part # Y8880283.

If you can tell us more about the nature of the wear and perhaps include photos we might be better able to determine the cause and find a remedy.
