I would read the pressure rating on the sidewall of the tire and then inflate the tire to the tire manufacturers pressure. In fact on my 1996 Tioga, the front two tires are Goodyear that state 80 psi, and the rear four are Cooper and they are rated at 65 psi. So that's what the tires are at. I have had no problems so far.

The psi on the side of a tire has no bearing whatever on what the presure should be, it merely reflects a maximum pressure for that tire. Its proper pressure is based on factors relating to the wehicle on which it is used.

Believe it.

Without doubt, the best material on RVs and tires is published by Michelin. I strongly recommend watching the Michelin videos ([url=http://www.michelinrvtires.com/michelinrv/toolbox/videos-demos.jsp]RV - The critical factor[/url] and [[url=http://www.michelinrvtires.com/michelinrv/toolbox/videos-demos.jsp]Things RV Owners Should Know[/url]), reading the [url=http://www.michelinrvtires.com/assets/pdf/RV_Brochure.pdf]RV Tire Guide[/url] and [url=http://www.michelinrvtires.com/assets/pdf/TB-Service-Life-for-RV-Tires.pdf]Service Life for RV Tires bulletin[/url], and following the [url=http://www.michelinrvtires.com/michelinrv/tires-retreads/load-inflation-tables.jsp]RV Tire Inflation Tables[/url]. edit: Updated for Michelin site changes.
