If you run more than 10 PSI over the required pressure for the actual load on the tire, won't you get uneven tire wear due to the overpressure?

In order to keep all the tread face in contact with the road, the recommended tire pressure for the load is, well, recommended; No?

I have been told on more than one occasion that road hazard insurance is not available on ST tires. Just sayin'

Running +10 psi over what is needed to carry the load on a high pressure tire (more than 79 psi) is not going to generate significant if any irregular wear. The irregular wear examples you show are more from the bias tire rather than radial tire days.

However lets say the weight indicates 70 psi is needed for the load. When you run down the road the hot pressure will increase because of the extra flexing of the tire due to it being heavily loaded.
Now suppose you run +10% (my suggestion) + round up to 80. The tire will deflect less so it will generate less heat so the hot pressure will not increase as much so part of the +10% is offset by less pressure growth due to less flexing.

Another item with TT usage is that it is very unusual for tires to wear out in the nominal 3 year life of a TT tire so a little more center wear, if it occurs, is not going to be a meaningful issue.

Given the choice I would prefer a tire removal at 4 years due to center wear rather than a tire removal at 3 years due to tread separation.

Inflation in the table is the indicated minimum inflation not necessarily the best compromise between wear and durability.

I stopped at my Discount tire today after work to get more info. They do offer road hazard on ST trailer tires. Bad news is the Carlisle HD I was contemplating are not in production yet.

I also spoke with Simple tire today and they cannot get Sailun in 235/80/16 but do have the 235/85/16. I have room for these and Simple tire was really great to deal with. DT is also willing to mount them.

Tireman9, if you see this my Hi Spec rims are stamped at 3460# Will these rims handle the 110 psi of the Sailun? I really wanted the 80's to keep my existing tires at least as a spare. The search continues.

Check these out. Haven't ever heard anything negative on them. I replaced my Westlakes after 10,000 miles and have had these on for 5000 miles. They get good reviews from folks on the forum. I got mine at discount tire.
