Over inflate tires when winterizing?

Second year in winterizing the trailer, I normally keep the tire pressures at 80psi when traveling with it. I read when storing it for the winter it's recommended to over inflate the tires to prevent and bald spots. How much pressure should I add?

I talked to a Goodyear engineer before purchasing the Endurance tires as I had a few questions that the dealer could not answer, he told me the best way to store them is pull them off the trailer and reduce pressure to 10psi to hold shape and store indoors out of the sun laying flat. I have done this since I store inside anyway and its easy to remove the tires

Interesting good to know, my case trailer will be inside a barn with other trailers that I won't be able to remove the tires.

Did he suggest anything for the majority of us who have to leave the RV on the wheels?? I try to lift up the axle a little to take some off the tires but can't do much due to gravel bed shifts over the winter.

He said if you can't remove them try to jack it up and remove as much weight as possible on the tires, and fill to max pressure rating on the sidewall

On a different I was considering storing my trailer after driving over my Anderson Leveler blocks. They seem to fit somewhat close to the diameter of my tires.

I wouldn't overinflate for any reason.

I inflate to max pressure and also run up on a piece of scrap lumber to get the tires out of the gravel. Been doing this for the past five winters and no problems so far.

My rig never sits still for over a month at home but it's on concrete and under a pole shed. If I were to do something, it would seem jacking and using jack stands to reduce weight on them would be the best thing for the ties.

I have never over inflated a tire or removed them but then living in milder climates it is not necessary.
