Glen lacking a Dunlop Load Pressure table I would use the Michelin chart to select the tire pressure for each axle. Hopefully you have a truck scale near you so you can weigh your coach at each axle. Here's a link to the Michelin chart

No scale in sight but we will watch for one as we travel. We will go with 105 front and 75 rear till we weigh up. In Beckley WV right now headed North on I64 to Charleston.

Steve, I ran a little higher pressures in my FC but certainly the pressures should be calculated as per Rob's chart. I just thought 75 seemed pretty low. I think I ran 90 and 105 in my FC and it was a 31 footer. Always better to be a little high then too low. Right?

On a chart in my compressure bay it said 120psi all tires cold. I put 110 PSI cold. Going down the road the fronts can reach 135 PSI hot. Per the tire mon.

Glen,

Here is the Dunlop chart, they don't list the 318 but you can choose a similar model and load range to determine the proper pressure. http://www.dunloptires.com/truck/res...gData_Imgs.pdf

You can locate a scale by using this web site http://www.dieselboss.com/

Bob, I am no expert but, if your tire is to be inflated to 120 psi cold why would you decrease it to 110 because it reaches 135 while hot?
