Just so everyone knows, this is obsolete advice. Things have changed and the reason why this advice was offered has be fixed. If you want the technical details and the history, I can do that. Warning: It's a long and boring story.

If you want to know what minimum PSI your specific trailer needs to adhere manufacture specifications, just run your trailer over the cat scale, calculate your tire load (per tire), and look up the minimum inflation requirement in the table based on the tire size.

If you want to go with a higher PSI than what is in the load chart there is no harm in doing so, you simply yield a firmer than necessary ride.
The max speed of Endurance is indeed 140kmph/87mph, but most ST tires , and also the Endurance most, are given maxload for 65mph.
In earlyer days the old ST , for max speed 75mph the 65ps for D-load had to be highened up with 10 psi to 75 psi, and for 85?mph and 10 psi higher, and 10% reduction of maxload.
Mayby Capri Racer wants to comfirm this.
I realise that you wont take it from this amateur european guy, that put gremlins in your tire.

In the list you linked to , there is 235/85 R 16 G-load ( AT 110 psi) , both in ST and LT.
Only difference in construction could be lesser profile for the ST.
Maxload ST 4400LBS is loadindex 132.
Maxload LT 3750 LBS IS LI 126.
Most LT are calculated in maxload for 160km/99m/h, and the system I figured out the tiremakers also use is rule of tumb 1 LI-step different for every 10km/6.5m/h different.
Higher speed 》lower LI, lower speed 》 higher LI.
The 6 LI- step higher for ST here, is almost in line with the 6x6.5mph lower is 39 mph lower speed would be 60mph , so this proves the higher maxload for 65mph for wich the ST is calculated.

The GY Endurance chart above shows recommended weight and PSI per tier, with max speed of 87mph for 15" tires...Again, take your trailer weight and divide by 4 to get your "pretty close" to actual weight on each wheel/tire for easy calculation. Or you can always weigh each wheel if you want to be totally accurate...

Tire Size MAX-MPH Inflation PSI
45psi 50psi 55psi 60psi

Jypsydad,
The chart is way to easy.

We are using 'rule of thumb' calculations here, without knowing the size of the thumbs. 🤓

This is from my earlier post of a great discussion re: gye - psi - load per tire -margin - speed rating 65 vs 87...discussion initially revolving around the fact (as i understand them...TM9 & CR, please correct if i' missed it) ST tires and 65 mph speed rating.

Took me awhile to find it buy here ya go...

TM9 & CF, thanks again for your sound advice. I have found it good to reread on occasion. This trip my laptop crashed so my handy reread link was not so handy.

Giving maximum load for lower speed then the max acording to speedcode, is commonly used by the tiremakers for P-tires. So its not a flat earth theory of mine and CruzinDux gave the link to the prove of using 65mph for ST in former post.
Most P-tires give maximum load for 160kmh/99mph , this is the reference speed.
Then for P-tires they use a system of highening up the reference-pressure of SL 35 or 36 psi and XL 41 or 42 psi, for higher speed.
They give the maximum allowed cold pressure only on P-tires of between 44 and 51 psi, and for XL sometimes even 60 psi.
The space between reference and maxcold is used for that highening up reference ( LT pressure behind AT) for speed and camber angle ( alignment tires like this on the axle /-\ instead of this|-|) above 2 degr.
This system and the European Formula I once got hold of and went running with.
Alternative system for this could also be lowering the maximum load for speed.A simpler system and to my conclusions saver and more to the rules of nature.
Will give a image I made with the needed pressure rising for speed .
For V-W-Y speedrating 30 kmph below maxspeed even maxload is lowered, yust the same as for the LT tires system.

The discussion in that earlier thread is worth a good read IMO. Thanks Bob for pointing back there. Way easier to read previous discussions than to repeat them all here again IMO. How many dozens of tire threads are there?

PS -- Comments are still open in that other thread, so by Quoting Tireman9 or CapriRacer there, intelligent follow-up questions can be resolved in the context of the original comments.

1) The load tables are MINIMUMS!! If you are using those, don't forget to use MORE - and my rule of thumb is to have 15% reserve (unused) capacity.

2) If you haven't weighed each wheel position of the vehicle, you are guessing what the actual load on the tire is. We have lots of evidence that load is NOT even, front to rear and side to side.

For example, I use a 15% variation for a 4 wheeled trailer, even though I haven't seen more than 10% from actual weighings.

When I spoke with the Goodyear folks direct, it was clear the stamp on the tire says 80lbs per tire (cold). We also have TPMS and believe it or not have never had the tire pressure vary more than 2 lbs (max) in almost 2 years now of driving. And yes, that is through the summers in Oklahoma and Texas (Houston, here) and to the extreme winters in Cleveland, Ohio. Consistent. In fact, they told me that the tires are designed to perform optimally at that pressure. Mine actually show no signs of wear either (just had them inspected since we are pretty anal about replacing tires even on our vehicles). Coupled with the Hensley Hitch (hydraulic strut version set on middle position) and the Hensley brake controller and we haven't even had so much as a slide on the road or any pressure issues whatsoever. We will keep watching it, but so far it has been effortless. Hope this helps.

Sorry, should have read "purchased in 2017......" Sorry for the typo, before the flames start flying.......

My 2018 Serenity 28 also has factory stickers calling for 80 psi cold. I am following the factory recommendations, as I hope the factory knows what they are doing.

Agreed. By the table and per CAT scale fully loaded ready for camping, I should be at 40 PSI minimum strictly speaking (1,880lbs/tire). Due to front-to-rear & side-to-side load differences, and additional overhead factored in, I run at 65 (2,540lbs/tire). 35% reserve / buffer.

Not much here to say that hasn't been said already, except: I also spoke with a Goodyear "tire expert" on the phone this morning, (after going thru 3 different Goodyear reps. first!) When I asked regarding the PSI vs weight on their charts, he recommended I follow the GYE chart numbers for PSI for weight on my trailer. He said the "max inflate" numbers are a guide since most people don't know their trailer weight. He went on to say, the "composition of materials used in tires vary' greatly from manufacturer, and although there are "other" tire charts out there, best to follow the specific tire manufacturer guide if you know your vehicle weights for best performance.
