: "Using wide-base singles with a standard axle, you need a 2-inch offset wheel," explains Bill Hicks, director of product development and planning for trailer suspension at SAF Holland. "When you go to a 2-inch outset rim, you move the centerline of the tire farther out from the centerline of the bearings on the spindle. That can induce bearing wear as well as inner-edge wear on the wide-base tire." According to Kurt Burmeister, ArvinMeritors general sales manager for North American field operations, switching between dual and wide single tires with 2-inch offset rims could significantly alter bearing loads and the service life of both the bearings and the hub (and cause inner shoulder wear on tires, too). "If you put a wide-base single on a conventional track housing, you have a tendency to load the outer bearing in the wheel-end system more than it is designed for. Youll reduce the life of that bearing, and in the most severe state, you''ll see the bearing degrade, and possibly damaging the spindle itself," he says.
We have the same exact issue, same tires and wheels. The above is the answer i got from another website. It looks like we have to get rid of the 2 " offset wheels.
Tire shops can't give us any answers so we flipped the tires on the rims and switched sides to save the tire. Did not solve the issue. Gonna have to see Eldon or Chad.
