Tire pressure - Tow hauler trailer

What pressure do you keep your toy hauler tires? Max or less. This is cold pressure.

I always run my tires at the "MAX" pressure recommended on the trailer sticker. Others may do differently.

Trailer sticker maybe wrong. My Trailer sticker show 10 PSI higher that the Tire max psi on the tires . Always check the tire PSI .

I wonder if maybe your tires aren't the right tires for your trailer...

I use to own a greywolf with 14" tires. My Harley loaded maxed out the GVW, so I ran max pressure on the sidewall.

Best thing to do is load it up ad weigh it.

If it's a towable, then use max cold psi on the tire. Easy. If it has an engine, weigh it and use the manufacturer charts for psi which should be somewhere between the sticker and the sidewall psi.

This is the 2nd FR trailer that didnít match the sticker.
The 1st time FR sent me 4 new tire and rims to a local freight depot.
This time I didnít do anything since every matching trailer had the same sticker and tire in the lot when I picked it up.

In the last 13,000 miles I have always run the max pressure. The trailer is most always at max GVW, to the limit on axles. Tires haven't lasted at all. First set was eaten by the axle alignment, second set just wore out in 7K miles, they were Goodyear Endurance.

SO this time I am taking a chance on tires from E-Trailer. They are Providers, 14ply, chinese run them at the recommended #100 but they have a load rating of over 8K per axle, still the light weight 6400# Lippert axles. The next move will be to replace with 8K axles.

One thing I will say for the 14ply tires, they do track down the road better than the 8 plys did. Time and distance will tell how this works out.

I run the 14 ply tires on everything. We have numerous work trailers that had E range tires and were wearing out in 7-10,000 miles. we have 25,000 on the 14 ply G tires and still look like new.
