Tire manufacturers build their tires to carry a specific weight at a specific pressure- Vehicle manufacturers post their recommendations to provide a more comfortable ride while carrying a specific weight- In the recent past, tire manufacturers got an undeserved black eye because vehicle manufacturers posted lower tire pressures to achieve a softer ride- The results were catastrophic- I always inflate all my tires to the maximum posted on the TIRE and endure what little discomfort is created- Incidentally, we have not had a tire failure in the last 10+ years of fulltiming- Of course, we have LT tires on both truck and trailer- JMHO- DD

Fulltiming since July 1, 1999 currently with a 2005 GMC Sierra 3500 cc drw towing a 2007 Jayco Eagle 341RLQS
