Question Under pressure

Do you run your TT tires at max pressure?

I run them a little tight in he colder months and softer in the summer. But hardly never at max. When I say tight and soft, I mean just by a pound or two.

I run max pressure. My assumption is that there is less resistance on the road thereby increasing efficiency. The downside I suppose is that there will be more feeling of bumps.

Yes, I check them before leaving and air them up to the 65 pound noted on the tires and in my FW owners' manual. 80 in the rear tires of my tv and 65 in the front, as called for by the manufacturer.

Yes, TT tires at max. Ran at 50 psi when I had load range C tires. Upgraded to load range D's and now run them at 60 psi.

TT @ max (80 PSI) to get maximum load.
TV Rear @ max (80 PSI) again to get maximum load.
TV Front @ 60 - 65 PSI, found this is where I get the best ride.

In winter when not towing I drop the TV Rear to ~70 PSI.

TT always at max sidewall pressure (50psi). TV still has P-rated OEM tires so at max sidewall pressure when towing (44psi), otherwise manufacturer recommended pressure per the door sticker when not towing (39psi).
