Not knowing what your toad is or how much "load" we are talking about makes offering an informed observation difficult.
If you are using the toad as if it were a trailer with lots of stuff you need to be sure you are not overloading it's tires. This is not hard to do as even some SUVs have relatively small load capacity. The good news is that you do not need "corner" loads as the side to side difference of cars, SUV & P/U are reasonable balanced. Note F & R are probably quite different. A quick visit to a standard truck scale like CAT will let you compare the actual axle loads to the GAWR for each axle of the toad. With that info you simply look at the vehicle placard (usually on driver door jam) and confirm you are not overloaded and that you have at least the minimum air pressure the car mfg suggested.
One other thought: Even if the toad has an OE TPMS it would be a good idea to get 4 extra sensor and have them show on the monitor in the RV.
