    Please help if you can. We have a new Boxer panel van conversion hitting the road at 3140 weight. With our loading it'll be nearer to the 3.5 tonnes of course. What tyre pressures should we be looking at? Thanks in anticipation.

    Suggest you have your van weighed front and rear axles. Then contact the tyre makers and they will give you the CORRECT pressures.

    I'm running at the 3.5 ton capacity so using the ones indicated on the door pillar but without going out to look I cannot remember but something like 60 front and 65 rear.

    The comment above about contacting the tyre manufacturer hits the problem on the head. There seems to be a huge difference between the pressures recommended by different companies. Michelin might say 80 psi but Continental might say 50! I am sure each is correct but only for their tyre. This is why the door pillar figures are only a rough guide, as it does not take into account the make of tyre.

    Ignore the pressures on the door pillars they won't be correct. As Colyboy says the ONLY way to find out the correct pressures is to contact the tyre makers, giving them the details of the tyres and ideally actual axle weights but if not use the plated ones. They will then tell you the correct pressures for those specific tyres at those weights.

    what ever pressure you decide on if the centre of the tyre is wearing faster than both outside edges of the tyre you're pressure is to high if both the outside edges are wearing faster than the centre you're pressure is to low.
