Correct Tyre Pressure for towing

Recommended Posts

Please dont laugh at me but I am trying my best to find the correct pressure for my tyres when it is in normal driving mode and when I am towing! (Heavy Stuff)

I have a 90 defender county with BF Goodrich Tyres at LT 265/ 75 R16.

Any Wisdom?

can't say about normal mode, but standard practice for heavy towing ie 3T is to pump up the rears hard - near to the max rating stated on the tyre - particularly important for the wider tyres

If the nose weight of the trailer is less than the carrying capacity of the land rover and the back is not loaded then normal pressures should be OK but I usually put about 40 psi in to help with stability in the ruts on the motorway. :)
