Maxxis, thought I would share........

This was my response from Maxxis I received today.

Thank you for your request. Maxxis Internatonal is a top ten global tire manufacturer and I can assure you that we have all of the the required ISO Certifications and probaby exceed them by a tremendous amount. Our ST Trailer tires are built in our company owned state-of-the-art factory in Thailand.

Please refer to our load/inflation table in the trailer tire section of our web site and this should help answer your question about runing the tires at 70 psi.

Best regards,

Your Maxxis Support Team

That is IF the load on the tire is 3480 Lbs.

I doubt that you will be loading the tire to that weight.

You should inflate the the pressure indicated for you load.

It came from the factory with all 4 at 80psi. I can adjust at next CAT.

I always run with my tires inflated to the max as stated on the sidewall of the tire, regardless of weight.

Why would you want to run at a lower pressure. Are you going to go to the scales ever time you go so you can make sure you are not overloaded? I am not sure what you are trying to gain by running them at 70 instead of 80.

Unless the rims are also rated for 80 PSI, you run the risk of having a rim fail.

Many people on the forum move up from factory tires to "better" tires. While they provide better failure avoidance, arbitrarily inflating to the pressure stated on the sidewall of the tire when the rims are not rated for that pressure is not recommended.

Also inflating tires to 80 psi on a trailer like a Signature UltraLite will result in a much harsher ride.

Hence my statement about inflating to the recommended tire pressure for a given load.

"Q: What are the consequences of inflating the tires to accommodate the actual loads?"

"A: If the inflation pressure corresponds to the actual tire load according to the tire manufacturer’s load and pressure table, the tire will be running at 100% of its rated load at that pressure. This practice may not provide sufficient safety margin. Any air pressure loss below the minimum required to carry the load can result in eventual tire failure."
