There should be a label on the left front side of the trailer with the recommended pressure.

Inflate the trailer tire to the maximum cold pressure stamped on the tire.

Mike, the chart on the trailer may be incorrect if someone changed the tires to a higher (or lower) Load Range Tire than was on the trailer at time of production.

It's safer to get the pressure off the tire itself.

I would agree with that statement, Russell. The assumption was they are the tires that came on the rig. Thanks for posting the other info. I'm going to upgrade to load range D tires and that sticker won't do me much good then.

For trailer tires I would always recommend inflating the tires to the maximum cold pressure stamped on the tire. There is no reason to run trailer tires less than the maximum. It's not like anyone is riding in the trailer to be disturbed by a slightly harsher ride. The tires will run cooler and have the least chance of failure is maintained at the max cold pressure on the tire.
