If your tires are too hot to hold your hand on them for about 5 seconds then YOU HAVE A PROBLEM
- Your pressure is too low for the load
- You are driving too fast or too close to a tire max speed rating
- Your tires are undersized for the actual load you carry
Re "deformed" tire. Have you captured a photo? Did you record the full DOT serial and have you filed a complaint with NHTSA?
