what would temp reaings indicate if the right rear tires is reading 20-25 degrees warmer on the inside than the middle and the outside. For example.. reading inside to outside.. 200-175-175. All other tires seem fairly even across the surface except this one.

Sounds like rotor heat to me; unless you're running a large amount of stagger...then too much pressure in the RR will cause the inside edge to heat up like that.

i dont think it is rotor heat because we never had this problem before and this is the only tire that does it. The left is a little warmer like 5 degrees which i attribute to rotor heat.

Only running like 1 1/4 to 1 1/2" stagger. Beginning to wonder if the rearend tube on that side is bent and cambered a little causing the heat.
