    Sorry, I know this crops up regularly, but having read the previous threads am still unsure.

    I have a Swift Tag with Michelin 225/75R16 CP (CP meaning heavy range with camping tyres according to the book) tyres all round, checking the tyres today in order to fit Jim`s gadgets, found fronts to be 59 and 63 and the rears all between 45-53.

    Fiat handbook and sticker on door pillar say 5.5 (79.5) all round. Does that sound about right?

    From what I have read it seems MH tyres have a tendency to deflate more regularly than car tyres, with that in mind and to do them at a garage would be a right pain in the ass, can anyone recommend a half decent tyre inflating gizmo that will run off 12v please.

    Thanks

    Steve

    a lot of members use this one

    HERE

    does the job and rated to 140psi with a run time of 40 minutes

    it does my RV tyres and they run at 80psi


    the 5.5bar on the door post is the max pressure for the chassis but may be far too hard for a motorhome.

    I use that pump as well and my tyres are pumped up to 80 psi, thats what recommended by Ducato/Swift, I get a good return on mpg. :thumb:
