Tire pressure

For you DX3 owners what kind of tire pressure are you running. I know max load pressure is 110 but I'm pulling a Jeep on all 4. Can I go as low as 95 ??

The best option for motorhomes is to get the rig weighed and then use inflation tables for pressure.

Everyone is going to load differently. 95 might be good for one where another needs 100 depending on the weight they're carrying.

What brand tires do you have? Usually their websites have them.

I'm running 95 front 100 rear. Towing a 4 dr jeep on a trailer. This was my weigh ticket. Took the axle weights and compared with the sticker on the drivers door to figure out the ratio.

Best thing to do is get weighed at a CAT scale next time out, its quick and easy.

As already written, first you have to determine the real weights on axles or better even seperate tires ( or tirepair). often yudged wrong, so best is weighing.
Then you can even add 10% to that for reserve and unequal load R/L if axles weighed, and gripp and comfort still acceptable.
Then look up these in a pressure/loadcapacity-list.

I made extra save p/LC lists and added one in this post as atachment, for the 110 psi. Saver then the European made lists , and much saver then the USA made lists.

Look on tire for the maximum load or loadindex, then search that in the PDF I gave, and look in that line for the load yust above yours determined.
Look below or above for the pressure it needs.

you can find these lists in a map on my public map of one-drive that belongs to my hotmail-adress with username as in this forum ( jadatis).

Even a collection PDF of all the pressures ( loadranges), and given per tire, axle single and axle dual. The list I added is for per tire, so you have to devide by 2 for single axle and 4 for a dual axle.
