Carrying Weight & Tire Pressure

I kept reading that I should weigh my Adventurer 35P so I finally did today after loading it with water, fuel, etc.. I weighed the front axle and back axle separately. I have been running 90 pounds of air front and back.

The Michelin charts say I should have 75 pounds in the front and 85 pounds in the rear so I lowered them all accordingly. Our rig drives very well already but, who knows, this may make it even better.

I just did the same thing . I have been using 90 lbs front and rear. Based on actual weight the michelin chart said 75lbs fron and rear. Anxious to drive it with new weight.

OR.....It could be worse.

The pressure you are referring to could, and for me IS, just the lower limit of a range of pressure depending upon ride, handling, safety, and wear, among a longer list.

Just my opinion.

All I am going by is the tire pressure that Michelin says I should be running. One would think that the manufacturer would know. Maybe not.
