'62 bambi tire pressure

Hi,

We have a '62 Bambi with brand new trailer tires, but we're not sure what pressure we should be running it on. We currently have it at 42psi. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Jennifer

Jennifer,
If you look on the sidewall of your new tires you should see a max inflation limit. Depending on the type of tire (our trailer tires have a 65 psi max- measure when cool) Some members run with their tires at this max psi, but I choose to run just a little less, because at max psi your tires are very hard. Just buy a good quality air gage and check your tire pressure often!!
