Creeping sound MBS 2401R from dual tires

My kid is walking beside rv while I'm driving slowly. It's sounds like steel rim is flexing cause hub cap to squeak( I think that where it coming from but not sure). Do you hear that on your? Any idea?

Do this; spray some WD 40 or similar light duty lubricant completely around the lip of the hubcap. Repeat the test and see if the noise is mitigated.
Here is why I say that, there is a thread in the Solera subforum, that was posted a while back, that showed the riveted anchor points that hold the cap to the rim, exhibiting failure do to wear movement. Not sure if that is your noise issue, but its worth investigation. Just sayin'

I think you are right because it sounds like it is warping under the weight of the rv as it's rolling. I will test next weekend when I take it out again.

I took them off right now because of tire safeguard flow through sensors. I can't wait until next camping trip to test out the sensors. Thanks again.
