I agree completely, Both over and under inflation damage tires, affect tire life and handling. Use tires the way tire mfgr recommends, use common sense and check often. On previous unit I put 110,000 miles without tire problems following this process. I hope to do 100,000 more. Going with the max will work for many people because units are at upper limits for weight. Mine isn't.

Air for tires

Welder. Not sure what you're driving, but, There is a sticker on the bulkhead next to the driver seat that will give you recommended tire pressure. I run 84 pounds in my 30DS.

Would/should the two not coincide with each other if the correct size tire is installed?

If the maximum side wall pressure is less than the placard you have the wrong tires. But I doubt that would exist. The proper pressure is what the placard says. But never exceed the maximum side wall pressure. True you can play with the pressure like Nascar mechanics do to change handling. But non optimal tire wear will result. And if you overheat your tire it will fail.

I purchased a remote air pressure monitor and highly recommend one for everyone. Mine monitors 8 tires. 6 on my 30DS and 2 on my toe dolly.
