Tire Pressure

I have a 2013 26RLS. I have been running 65 psi in the tires.
Is this the correct pressure? What pressure should I run.
I just bought a tire monitoring system for the trailer and want to program with right data.

The recommended pressure (cold) will be printed on a white sticker on the outside of your trailer.

Tire sidewall is another good source for inflation information.

No, that's the max pressure the tire can handle. It's not necessarily the right pressure for the application. Stick to what the vehicle manufacturer recommends.

The pressure printed on the sidewall is also the pressure that affords the best carrying capacity of the tire. Upgrading the load range would not gain much if the pressure isn't increased.

Some folks think it is the additional plies that give the added capacity but it is the increased air pressure. The added ply rating allow this increase in pressure.

Confused yet?

what if the max pressure on the tire exceeds the max pressure rating on the rim or valve stem!!!!!

Point being - take all things into consideration....and that's what the OEM sticker does.
