Re: [RC] trailer tire pressure - Truman Prevatt

Trailer tire pressure should be set according to the weight on the tires. More weight the higher the pressure. Tires with too low pressure for the weight will build up heat and blow out. That sure isn't a good ride for the ponies. A blow out from an over heated tire will not give your ponies a good ride.

I took my trailer over today to have a new tire put on (eeek, don’t even ask $$$) and the guy checked the pressure in my other tires. He said there was supposed to be 65# in my tires but there was 55# in all of them. / /It made me wonder if a little less air in the tires would give the ponies a better ride. Do you all ‘air up’ your tires to the requirement or do you soften them for an easier ride? I want my tires to last a long time but still…. those ponies.
