Wheels are fairly simple mechanisms easily checked out for peace of mind and to avoid more costly repairs. If they check out as OK then check them by hand at the first rest area. Bingo you now know exactly what properly functioning tires on your trailer feel like in the ambient temps for your area.


My dad used to stop at the same gas stations just before we hit the highway to check the trailer and vehicle. I always figured it was just so us kids would hit the bathroom before the highway but no it was just a chance to make sure everything was as it should be after a bit of driving and before jumping on the highway.

Technically, the OP did ask what the normal temperature is. But does it matter if the normal temperature is 90 degrees, 110, or 120. The bottom line is that if you stop somewhere and haven't been applying the brakes excessively such as for a long downgrade, you should be able to grasp the hub and not burn your hand. In other words, if you can keep your bare hand on them, they are not too hot, regardless of the actual temperature.
