Tire Question

Hi gang,

I noticed this “bump” on my driver side rear tire on my 2016 FR3 30 DS. I haven’t taken it out since last June and I would assume the tires are at least 5 years old. I have 22K miles on the coach.

Should I be concerned with this? Any recommendations on what should be done if anything? I attached a picture.

Thanks!

ripples in the sidewalls are common on tires and don't normally indicate a problem. One of the tire guys will be better able to explain whey this happens. My truck has several.

There is a great site where you can get everything imaginable about tires: RV Tire Safety

Roger Marble writes the blog and he has over 40 years experience as a tire engineer. He can answer any question too... Great info source.
