Thomas Heime is wrong, wrong, wrong! That is the max. pressure that the tyre can handle! the proper tyre pressure is written below the latch on the passenger side door. Open the passenger door, look at the label below the latch and there it is.

Re: 1998 RAV4 TYRE PRESSURE??
The correct tire pressure is located on the side of your tires and usually the passenger tires are 34 P.S.I. sometimes a litttle more depending on your tires. if you have 4x4 you should have no problem driving on the beach i would just stay away from the water,
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

It depends upon the type of tyre, whether you have a single or dual axle as well as the weight of the van when loaded.
The maximum tyre pressure for the type of tyre you have will be listed on the sidewall of the tyre. Given the weight of a loaded caravan I would recommend you run the tyres at 2 PSI under the maximum pressure listed on the tyre for a cold inflation. If the maximum is, say, 40 psi then run the tyre at 38 psi. Tyre pressures will increase when the tyres are warmed up from running so always check and adjust the pressures when cold and purchase a good tyre gauge to carry with you if you do not have one yet. Higher tyre pressures within max specification, will lower the tyre's rolling resistance and tyre heat build up, places less stress on the tow vehicle and will give better tyre life on the van tyres.
Tyres are maximum load rated so know the van weight and make sure you do not exceed the load limits of the tyres (printed on the side wall) when adding weight to the van, including water storage.
depending on the vehicle /weight and expected speed, 26-28 psi. heavy vehicle or travelling at high speed it can go up to 30psi. The recommended tyre pressure will be on the specification plate for wheels and tyres on the door edge or door opening pillar. Some makes of tyres have the tyre pressure moulded into the side wall of the tyre.
there is supposed to be a decal on the passengers side door pillar that has that information, it is a sticker and sometimes comes off. I usually run my tires at 32 psi for fuel mileage and wear, they seem to perform better at that pressure
