    Due to Michelin no longer producing the XC camping tyres I have to change over to the MICHELIN AGILIS CAMPING 8PR 225/70 R15 112Q.

    Unfortunatly I cant find the maximum pressure for this tyre, I know the loading is 1120 KG but that does not help.

    Has anybody found pressure for this tyre? and what does the "Q" on the end mean?

    Q rated tyres are for max speed of 99 MPH

    I have the Michelin Agilis on my m/h and they are certainly good for 80psi I run my rears.

    Just checked .......mine are 225/75 R16 so will be different to yours

    i would think its somewhere similar to the XC camping tyre as they are the replacement.
    try the michelin website they should have the info required.
    they also have M&S ratings if they have over a certain amount of tread so they are a better option if travelling abroad in winter.

    Your not going to believe this.... but I have just spent the last hour searching the Michelin site for "pressures" and found none, other that to look on the door pillar!!!

    Can you give my the ULR for that page please.

    i dont think its to do with the weight of the van in reality.
    i think its more to stop the flat spots occurring whilst stood.
    although mine are at around 80psi but on a 5 ton tag so each tyre actually sees well under a ton

    I got the tyre pressures for mine by calling Michelin customer services with details of fully laden axle weights (from local weighbridge) and tyres.

    They came back with the recommended pressures and allowable variations for comfort.

    I can recommend Michelin at Stoke, there technical dept is very good. Have had several dealings with them in the past and can only praise them. If Michelin told you to put 80 psi in it must be right. It just seemed a lot to me. I run 3500kgs with 60psi front and 65psi rear. Will ring the Mich on Monday as I could well be under inflated.

    You will need your fully loaded axle weights for accurate results
