Bay Star tire PSI

Weighed my Baystar at a truck stop. Used the Michelin RV guide and ended up using 90 in the rears and 80 up front. Looks like my outer edges are wearing up front. Got about 15k now. I'm thinking that I should run 90 up front and a little more n the rear.
Can only Bay Star owners reply on their air pressure used. My pkackard in the coach says 95.

Seems like it's always the other way around, Joe up front than back. Maybe you should double check your numbers. Under-inflation would cause the tire wear too.

Interesting. I'd be interested in what you hear. The placard on my Sport shows 92 all around but the Goodyear charts based on GAWR shows about 80 rear and 85 front. Currently running the 92.

Post your weights for better answers. Both my DSDP's took more pressure in the fronts than the rears, same with the present rig.

I was going by my axle weights using the Michelin RV tire inflation guide. The front weights are lower on my rig on the front axles.

My 2015 3124 is 2,400 lbs under gvwr (loaded for travel) and has 5k miles. Tires still look new. I run 80 psi in front and 85 psi in rear. I've not seen anything that would indicate the front tires should have more psi than the rears. My psi is based on Michelin chart plus 10%.

I run 85 front - 90 back on my canyon star based on my scale weight and tire chart plus a little. Diesels tire pressures are normally higher in the front than the back.

Although I am a new owner of a BayStar 3124, I had the dealer weigh before PDI. They recommended 90psi all around. (Spoke with the tire installer to confirm). I have done 3000 of a 5500 mile trip with no issues or handling problems.

I have a 2009 Baystar 3201 and run 90 all around. I have owned this for a year now and taken 4 trips and had no issues handling or with wear.
