Is it just my unit or do other wheels flex/twist a LOT when making a sharp turn (60-90 degrees) in forward and reverse?

Thanks for any input!

They all do it.
It's not necessarily that the wheels are flexing as much as it's the axles moving with all the torque that a sharp turn puts on them.

I've seen it on tractor trailers, but they have larger wheels and more axles. Wasn't sure if it was normal for 5ers.

Thanks!

I think it is the norm for any multi axle rig.

We just got back from a weekend trip and as I was backing my 5er into the spot here at home I happened to notice the flex in the tires. I had to back it in a little sharper than usual because I needed to keep it on the concrete pad since the yard is more like a swamp! I always pull the rig forward or backward after I have backed it in if I "torqued" the tires to allow the tires to take the torque off the sidewalls.
