Thought I would share this information. Decided to call Goodyear today and speak with “EXPERT TECHNICIANS”. Called them three times and spoke with three different so called experts with Goodyear. I gave all three my Goodyear Endurance tire size of 225/75R15 and the same weight of 8,300Lbs and by no surprise I received three different answers. 55,75, and 80. Thought that was funny.

Those "experts" must be the secretaries.

So headed to OBX last Tuesday. Endurance tires set at 80 PSI. About two hours into the drive I stopped for gas and to check the tires. PSI was 87. Dropped back to 80. The next day after arriving I rechecked the tires cold. They were at 69.

Seriously Papa-T, this stuff will mess with your head.........


Did you factor in the accuracy of your thermometer and pressure gauge and the ambient temperature of your departure vs arrival point?


ROFL.


I going to make some popcorn this is fun....

Ted, if your tires are supposed to have 80 psi, that is set when the tires are cold. They factor in the rise in psi for when you are running. Temps and psi always go up when they are turning on the road.
Set them when they're cold, and forget it if they look ok while you are on the road. If you want to check them again, do it the next morning.

I set mine at 10% less than max on the tire to allow for heat build. So if the max Is 80 I would set them @ 72 to 75 psi to allow for the heat build.

Read the label on the trailer. This will allow for the proper sidewall flex, which is important to keep the maximum tread patch on the road. Too much pressure and no flex and the trailer will bounce over irregularities, putting stress on everything those wheels are connected to. The max on the tires is just that - a max. It doesn't take into account the actual application for that tire. That's the job of those who engineered the trailer/vehicle in the first place.
