TT Tire Pressure

Hi all,

anyone knows what tire pressure is usually recommended on a Jay flight 27BH TT? I assume this would be common for most 27 footers regardless of model.

Well part of that depends on the tires you go on there and Max limits of weight and pressure...

Like as for my TT I got 1 tire load range C and the other 3 are load range D's... The C is limited to 50 PSI and the D's are limited to 65 PSI...

So looking at the profile I got 60 PSI in all the D's and the C is maxed out at 50 PSI...

This is one of my first big project ot do once the snow leaves is to put on a fresh set of Load Range E's and not worry about them... But I would still aim for about 60-65 PSI...

My Dry weight is roughly 6600# GVWR is 8500#... Even my Pickup weighing in at 7300# I got 60-65 PSI in them...

But any rate pay attention to the load range of the tire, the max weight and pressure capablities... don't over do it...

They are probably the ST load range C tires that came with it or similar, 50lbs. cold. You can look on the sidewall to be sure though.... -Lee

Typically, C rated ST tires take 50psi, and D rated take 65psi. I know for sure that the D rated Goodyears on my TT take 65psi, and the C rated Goodyears on my boat take 50psi. Different sized tires within the same weight rating may vary though.

My 2003 27BH had a sticker on the side that said max tire pressure was 45psi.

Always go by what the tires max pressure is on the sidewall. Load range d tires are 65 psi. Max pressure is where the max load rating is. If you are underinflated, it will cause excessive heat and a blowout.

Just go by what the max pressure is on the sidewall and you will be fine.

Thanks everyone, I have overlooked the tires as they seem in good shape, but a very important thing to overlook...

With 2005 for a date your tires are close to the end of their life.

Keep in mind it, if they are not the tires that came on the rims from the factory it is possible the max psi on the tires may be more than the rims are rated for.
