Look on the inside of the door frame for the tire pressure or your car manual.

OK I do have Towing capabilities for my Captiva 7 LTZ Diesel. The caravan is rated at 1750 kgs loaded. Question- What is the towing capacity of a Captiva 7 Diesel


carpoint.com.au suggests a tow limit of 1700 kgs with a max ball weight of 170 kg
if it is a 2.2 L diesel it is less than a 3.2 L petrol which is 2000 kgs
in your configuration you will need anti-sway bars or load levelers to get the ball weight down to the 170 kgs
then if you load the van for touring it will be well over the specs for the vehicle
the towing capacity should be on the plate inside a front door pillar along with tyre sizes and pressures

What's the tyre pressure for a caravan with 185r14c on it


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.

What are the tyre pressures front and back for towing a caravan


The upper limit of whatever your car manual says. Your caravan should have just a little extra hitch weight and no more that a fully loaded trunk. Overinflating tyres causes wear to the centre of the tread and loss of traction.

What is the correct tyre pressure for a 17 foot single axe pop top Regent caravan (tyre size 195-14)


I can calculate it with spreadsheet I made, call myself tyre-pressure specialist nowadays.
Depends on tyres maximum load and Pressure needed for that ( AT pressure 6pr 55psi/3.8 bar, 8pr 65psi/4.5bar or 69/70psi/4.75/4.8bar). and maximum speed of tyre given as letter mostly N to R for caravans.

Then from Caravan MPVW ( max permissable Vehicle Weight).
Or better real weight ( overloading is more rule then exeption and unequall load is possible.

But normal car tyres or XL/reinforced/Extraload are sometimes OK if they have enaugh maximum load for MPVW.
Will try to make picture of example.

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

Caravan tyre pressure guide


HiAnonymous

I trust you are well

I would suggest you look at your tryes and see what the manufacturer specifications are for the weight you are going to load on the tyres, it depends on what tyres you have on your caravan, they all differ.

Hope this helps you

kind regards

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.

Tyre Pressures: The Handbook for my April 2002 reg. V70 Estate gives two tyre pressures for both the front and the rear tyres, but I am getting misleading advice about which is the correct one to use. At...


Hello, any pressure in between is fine, these are recommended pressures, i personally look at tyre wear when putting pressure, if its wearing on the outsides it means it has not enough pressure, if it wears in the middle it has too much pressure, as a general guide 32psi is used at most tyre shops, extra 100kg does not make much differance to a 2 ton vehicle, otherwise you would be changing tyre pressure every time you fill up your fuel tank!!!!

Unexplained tyre ware X Type


This seems to be a fairly common problem with FWD vehicles recently.
Check the tyre pressures are at their top limit, then see if they seem to spread more than other peoples seem to in contact with the ground.

If they look ok, then have your tracking checked for alignment at a garage offering this.

If they still look bulgy at the base, then try to even out the wear by rotating tyres front to back, then bac to fron - but reverse them on the rims if possible.

Many times - it's the manufacture of the tyre at fault - try changing manufacturer next time - some just wear like that.
