Update and question:
So I got the coach weighed.....front axle 6620, so each tire is 3310 on the chart, but the tire chart does not go that low? So now I'm confused what Psi I should be running? The rear axle weight came in at 11020,.....so 11020/4=2755. Each rear tire. Once again, too low for the chart.......so either the weighing came in really low, and I had full fuel, tanks, and baggage loaded for the trip......what am I missing?

The lowest, weight to PSI numbers on the chart are the tire manufactures ABSOLUTE minimum air pressure allowable for the tire to perform properly. Inflate to that PSI and JMHO add 5 psi for good measure .


EDIT: Question, beside the tire sizing on the chart you posted , the second line highlighted, has a ( 1) after the tire size. What does that notation refer too?
Possibly a heavier load range tire ?

Thanks for the info......I guess I have been running my Psi a little higher than needed! That's a good Thing, since we are on are first long road trip......and some of the freeways are a bit rough! I am going to decrease my psi a few pounds tomorrow. As one poster pointed out, I should be using the second set on numbers since my tires were manufactured after 2006

Thanks again for all the responses!

Cherrs,
Tom
