Question ProperTire Pressure

I understand that in order to identify your proper tire pressure, you need to weight your coach first. What I don't know is what formula do you use to determine the correct tire pressure once you know the weight on each wheel. Can anyone tell me what to do?

Go to the tire manufacturers website and find the tire/pressure charts for that brand/model/size of tire and use the weights you got to find the pressure required.

If you have Michelin tires, their chart will show tires maximum pressure for a given weight. Check their website for a chart and see if that gives you the info needed. If not, someone here will have an answer.

Mr_D's post beat mine....

Nope, the Michelin charts (as do most others) show the MINIMUM pressure for the given weight.

You might want to check the chart again, mine states "Max Load and Pressure".
