What Tire Pressure Should Trailer with 12 inch Wheels be Ran At


How much air should I run in a 4.80 x 12 6 ply bias trailer tire when the maximum weight I carry is 600 pounds? I would like to cut down on the bouncing.


Expert Reply:

With trailer tires like # AM30670 you have to run the max tire pressure rating that's on the sidewall of the trailer. This ensures you get the full weight capacity of the tire and also that you prevent any heat build up which also leads to premature tire failure.

Trailer suspension by nature is a bit bouncier than vehicle suspension since there isn't a shock there to dampen the movement of it.
