In that case I had to use a WD hitch because my headlights were pointing at the sky. My RAM 2500 drops only 1 1/4 inch with the full tongue weight on the ball, so no need there.

I see your point about the lower tire pressure making for a softer ride, but that's not too good for your tires. I'm probably too tire sensitive after having two wheel wells destroyed. I run mine at the recommended 80 PSI for max load.

80 PSI.....recommended tire pressure from the MANUFACTURER - not any of us on here....the MANUFACTURER. Spoken to them myself. Never deviates more than +/- 1 or 2 lbs, no matter what weather. Happy travels!

From the Goodyear Endurance E chart; confirmed by GYthis morning:
ST225/75R15: 87mph weight/tire= 45PSI-2020lbs; 50PSI- 2150 lbs; 55PSI-2270lbs; 60PSI- 2380lbs
"Max pressure" numbers is listed is a guide for those who don't know their trailer weights...which many don't. GY recommends you use the chart if you know your trailer weight for max performance. Your mileage may vary...and of course, as always, you can run any pressure you feel you want to...just be careful!
