Trailer Tire PSI

Ok, I remember a big disscusion on the "old" board about this. Fitz had a tire blow and then there was a big debate. Anyhow, to the present what psi is everyone running their trailer tires at?

You know I donít remember. I do run them within a couple of lbs of the max. Just lower. This year I am going to have Costco fill them with whatever gas they use now. Supposed to eliminate expanding as they heat.

I was told to run them at the listed pressure on the sidewall. I think mine are 50psi.

I tried to get on the "old" site but the URL didn't load. I seem to remember the debate was either run them at max 50psi or at 35psi. I also seem to remember RickD had a lot to say on the subject.

The problem I would think with 50 psi is as they rotate they will heat and cause the pressure to rise over the max psi (theoretically in my head anyway).

Cary, you're on lake Gaston right?

Leroy, can you offer any explanation as to why you run that at 50?

It's marked that way on on the sidewall.

My tires say "max pressure cold"
I have always assumed that this meant they took account for road and outside air temp heat expansion.

I'm surprised most of the new tires for cars seem to be at 44PSI.
