Re: [A/S] Tire pressures?

What pressure do you put your truck and trailer tires at for traveling?

On the Truck, the tires say 80 max, the label on the door post says 80
rear, 65 front.

Trailer tires, load range E say 80 max.

What's the wisdom here? I don't want to harden the ride of either too
much, but it's maybe better for the tires to flex less?

Note that I'm heading out to drive in 90 plus temps.

Hi Daisy,

The truck numbers are (all most) always right… unless it's a Ford which seems to recommend dangerously low numbers. The trailer is another mater as it was (most likely) delivered with load range C tires. The E's are way over kill for your trailer so 65 should be fine. And remember these are cold presssures… they will go up as the tires warm up, so if you were to check them after towing they would read about 10 PSI higher, that's normal.

When in dough higher is safer then lower up to what it says on the tire side wall.
