Tire pressure

Which is correct to use the max cold tire pressure on the tire or on the label in the rv?
I have the Goodyear RV 245/70R195 max psi is 110. The label in the RV is 82 psi.

Max pressure is the max amount of air the tire will safely handle. The label gives you suggested air pressure to run (cold). Everybody has different suggestions. I run ours at 86psi (cold) all around and get good results with ride and comfort.

this question of yours is an ongoing debate between Ford mechanics (suggesting 110) and FR recommendations (82). I run at 86 also with good mpg and a nice comfortable ride (no jackhammering). Dont forget your weight helps establish your psi too.

Every tire mfg has a table that gives best pressure for a specific load.

It only costs $6 -$8 bucks to have your unit weighed and follow the tire mfg recommendation.

Over pressure and under pressure can cause long term problems , why guess?

Good advice Combatcoal. Ford mechanics are NOT tire specialists. I'll take the word of the tire mfg. over them any day. That tag on the drivers wall is a recommendation from the tire mfg. (Goodyear if so equipped), not FR or Ford, and is a a very good useful tool. If you were to change to say Michelin or any other mfg., there recommendations would probably be different. JMHO

I run mine at 86 #cold. My tire pressure monitor shows they can run up to 98 # while running all day. For us running slightly under loaded, considering the smaller F53 chassis and smaller tires, and factory shocks we get a reasonably good ride.

A good tire pressure and temp monitor is a wise investment. Although FR doesn't make it easy! In order to install my sensors I had to have a tire shop install Extended Dually Valves on all 6 tires.

90psi cold 100~104 when warmed up.
Temp/pressure tpms.

I have the 25DS so my ride was harsh (short wheel base) even after chf...did firestone air bags on front and adding rears this winter. Front was a huge improvement.
