Tyre pressures are partly determined by the tyre manufacturer, partly by the weight you are carrying and partly by the type of driving. When you are touring, up the pressure by about 5 pounds from that recommended. On the average, I would have 37lbs in the front tyres (front wheel drive) and 35lbs in the rear for motorway driving. This will keep the tyres a little cooler.

There should be a sticker on your door, or door post, or glove box, that tells recommended pressures. I'm guessing 30 to 35 psi. When in doubt, I go few psi lower than max. stamped on tire to start, then back it down 2 psi or so at a time until I get the ride, feel & handling that I like, then I watch the tread after a good drive down the highway. Dark on outside edges of tires, lighter in middle,air too low, add 2 psi at a time. Dark in center but lighter on outside edges, too much, remove 2 psi. & retry. Good ride, good handling, tread same all across, bingo, then I note it. Add few more pounds when carrying full load, back off to my notes for normal driving. Ride feels rougher than normal over bumps, lower it 2 psi. etc. etc. etc.

I drive a 2009 Mazda bt50 single cab tray back ute. The recommended unladen tyre pressures are 32 front and 30 rear but continually have approx 240 kilograms loaded in the tray. What pressures should


you should be running 8 ply tyres on the vehicle to carry the maximum load as required by the regulator
The recommended tyre pressure will be on a decal attached to the drivers door ( probably on the door frame under the latch)
Having said all that I recommend 45 psi for the rear and 40 for the front
If you run any less ,the ride will be smoother but if you load the vehicle, the rear tyres are under inflated and prone to failure from overheating
tyres are manufactured to run at a certain pressure due to the construction of the case. Talk to a tyre shop as to the pressure you should be using for the tyres.

Tyre Pressure for Majestic 19.6 ft Caravan


Depends also on the kind of tyre.
For the maximum load of tyre nex kinds need next pressure , wich is called AT-pressure/maxloadpressure/reference-pressure , for up to maximum speed of tyre or if lower 160km/99m/h. This is not the maximum pressure of tyre.

Normal car tyre /standardload AT 2.5bar/36psi ( exeptions as low as 2.2)
XL/Reinforced/Extraload AT 2.9bar/42psi ( exeptions 2.8 and 3.0)
6PR( plyrating) /C-load AT 3.8bar/55psi EUR ( USA 50psi/3.4bar)
8PR/D-load AT 4.5/4.8 bar/ 65/69/70 psi
From E -load is not often used in Europe.

From this AT pressure you can calculate the needed pressure for lower loads . Made spreadsheet for it in wich I first add 10% to the assumed load before calculating.
Will give example picture

Recommended tyre pressure


The required tyre pressure is established by the amount of load or weight that the tyre is carrying. Over or under inflation can cause excessive tire tread wear. The recommended pressures for your tyres are shown in raised lettering on the sidewall of the tyres.
Depending on what you are towing, you will know how much additional weight is being placed on the cars rear tyres, and you can adjust the pressure accordingly.
Personally, When I am towing, I increase the tire pressures by about 5 psi just to reduce sidewall flexing and create a more stable towing package.
Hope this helps.

RECOMMENDED TYRE PRESSURE


Check the inside of your driver side door. It will have the recommended tire size/specs along with pressure recommendations. Including your vehicle year, make, and model would help in the event of future issues.
