tilap, did you get a tire guide from the tire manufacturer when you purchased the coach? I got one from goodyear and it shows the process of calculating weights (by weighing the coach at the axles...front and rear or each corner) and from there determining what the inflation pressure should be.

My friend has one. Don't have my weights in front of me now but I run very light no junk or extras in my basements. Before I weighed it I started dropping the air 5 pound at a time. Then test drive. I actually had the best ride & drive the lower I went. I finally brought them back up to 95 and left them there.

Ford Idaho. I understand that pressure go up as the warm up etc. but there should be a limit as of how high it can go? My understanding (which is limited) is when pressure/temp goes to high you end up with a blow out?

Gasman, no I didn't but while doing research on line I found one. My plan is to get that done when I get out of here (northern Canada) pretty limited for scales around here. But I got a long way to go before I get to one, so trying to stay on the safe side till I get down south.

Denis, If you can find corner scales (weighs each individual wheel), this is the best. These scales are hard to find, so you may need to weigh each axle and set tire pressures accordingly. Good luck...

Tires blow because they are underinflated, overloaded or suffer from internal defects caused by running over a curb or hitting a pothole.

The biggest cause of tire failure is the end user (you/us/we).

Take your gross weight per axle as stated by manufacturer then go to the tire sheet for the tires you have and size, the sheet will tell you what the pressure should be for each axle by single or duel and this will be for a fully loaded to the max camper, Toyo states my 22.5s should run 80lbs which I found 85 rides and handles best.

I would not even consider running 80 lbs on my truck tires. 65 is way more than I need and the tires wear just fine.

We are talking about a motorhome I believe.

I am not too knowledgeable but I sure would not drive my Motorhome on 65 PSI tires. Yes I think he didn't realized we were talking about motorhome.
