Tire pressure for Georgetowns on 19.5" rims only please.

The sticker for my 330TS provided from Forest River recommends 80 PSI for the stock tires 245/70R 19.5 but I was just wondering what others with the 19.5" rims are running.

Thanks

On my 2015 328TS the sticker indicates both front and rear should be at 92 psi. That what I have been using and do not seem to have any issues.

On my 2014 351DS on 19.5 rims the decal by the driver reccomends 92 psi front and rear. That is what I run in all the tires.

I run my 280 on 82 lbs all around with no issues of wear or driveability.

The tag up in the cupbord says 85# but the coach manual says 80#. I have been using 80# in mine with no problems. Nitrogen filled.

My 2011 Georgetown 327DS says 80 all around. I have over 70k miles on the rear tires and 50+k on the fronts. (Forest River replaced the fronts after 20k miles - one was worn down to the cords.) All six show even increased wear on the inside and outside edges of the tires which is an indication of underinflation.

I've increased the pressure to 86psi all around. I also use a digital gauge to measure tire pressure. My compressor is an older Craftsman 125psi oilless, tankless unit and does a quick job topping off the tires. I also use a Harbor Freight clip-on air chuck to put air into the tires. Not having to hold the chuck on the valve makes it a lot easier to put air in the tires.

The recommended tire pressure is for the OEM Goodyear tires. If you change the tires to another brand, you should use the manufacturer's recommended pressure for the weight that the tire is carrying. I also have the tire chart for the Goodyear tires and 80psi is actually higher than recommended for my rig, as determined by measuring the weight on each tire.

Phil...that chuck sounds great but I can't find it on Harbor Freight... have you got a link or alternate source for what you are talking about? Tks.

My 328 TS has a sticker which says 92 psi. That's about where I keep it. Got nitrogen put in last year on dealer recommendation. Held for several months - longer than air. Have topped off with air before last cross-country trip. Tires seem to settle in the low 80s after a while. Ride is good. OEM Goodyear tires.

My 2015 GT 364 with 19.5" wheels says 95lbs, but it has a 22,000 GVWR, which makes a difference. On a related subject, I find it interesting that part way through the 2015 model year, FR switched to 22.5" wheels and tires. My Ford F53 manual says the tire size on the vehicle is 22.5" but it lists the 19.5" as optional! I wonder why FR made the switch to the larger tires??? I'm don't think that it was just because they wanted to be nice.
