120 psi is the max, not the correct pressure for the actual weight.

I'm surprised your chart reads that high. My chart reads 100 psi steer & tag tires, 90 psi drive tires. Those pressures are for Michelins 315/80/22.5's

The hot temp was just an observation on my part. I run 110 PSI cold do to the weight of the bus vs Toyo Tire charts.

I would say your right but the wording states 120 all tires. The word max is not on the plackard.

We could be misleading here. However you determine the correct cold tire pressure you do not adjust the tire pressure because it reads higher when it's warm. correct? I have monitors and the pressures do rise rather dramatically but I certainly don't bleed air out.

John you are correct. All tire inflation pressures are based on COLD.
