    Different for each make of tyre. You will get some guesses and opinions shortly but the only way you can get the proper pressures is to email your tyre manufacturers with the details of the tyres and the axle weights (plated weights are OK if you haven't got the actual weights)

    Correct tyre pressure helps you to predict fuel consumption accurately

    4.5 bar front and 3.5 bar rear depending on load based on 225r16CP tyres but rear is a tag axle so would imagine rear pressure to be higher in single rear wheels

    The sticker on our van is for the Fiat base vehicle. There is a page in the handbook which details the pressures for different tyres on the specific motorhome.

    With French air do you have to take the effect of the garlic into account?

    Agreed if your running weight is right up to limits
    If light load then I would go for
    60 front 70 rear
    Till you find out what it should be

    For mine Michelin have said 80 rear and adjust the front according to the actual axle weight. I've got 62 in the front at the moment.

    This is the table from our handbook. Your van is heavier than ours, Dave, but hopefully the figures will be reasonably close. tp.jpg
