    I have Michelin Camper tyres which recommend 80 psi (rear)
    I have yet to find a garage forecourt air pump,which will deliver 80 psi!!

  2. John Hajok says:

    I agree with the safety aspect of correct inflation pressures, etc. However, not at all straightforward, as I am again discovering with my new motorhome.
    The vehicle weighed in at: 1500kg front axle, 1850kg rear axle.
    The motorhome manual includes an extensive table of weights, pressures and tyres sizes. Advised pressures are: 45psi front, 57 rear.

    Tyresafe checker: 45psi front, 80 rear.

    Michelin: 65psi front, 80 rear.

    An unacceptably wide divergence, you will agree.
