Tire Guide

Since we talk about tires soooooo much I thought I would share this tire guide from goodyear I found.

Good reference. I had seen it before.

Note that on page 13 it says to inflate your tires to 25% over the max pressure for storage, if the rim can handle it. That would be 100# in my LRE. Does anyone actually do that? I never have.

I actually do. The rims should be an issue due to the fact that the hot running pressure gets that high anyways

I aired mine to 65# before covering them @25% over that would be 81+ PSI, I would not feel "comfortable" with that

I have the tire monitoring system on mine and during travel my 80psi tires go up to almost 95psi on hot days anyways The 25% more accommodates for the lost in psi when gets really cold. No matter if it is 25% more or a little less more psi during winter months storage is a good thing

I have ST 225 75 R15 Akuret brand tires, I do not want to be next to them at that pressure.

Remember to keep in mind that this guide is for Goodyear tires. I would seek information from my particular tire manufacturer before doing this on non-Goodyear tires.....

Putting an extra 10 pounds or so in any brand tire will not harm it as long as the trailer is not being moved. During use any tire when it gets hot the psi goes up 10 to 15 pounds anyways.
