    confused as to what the question is

    if its which pressure to go by, basically use the ones on the pillar till you know axle weights then use the table available in downloads. the max pressure on the tyre is relevant in the us only apparently. the fiat pressures are based on max load constantly but the tyre manufacturers will give a more precise pressure based on actual weight

    Continental's recommended pressures chart shows pressures ranging from 3 to 5.5 bar for those tyres, depending on which axle & what axle load.

    If you quote the max allowable weight for each axle I can tell you what the pressures should be for maximum load, which will give you an idea until you get a chance to get to a weighbridge. You should find those on a metal plate somewhere.

    I can tell you that Continental's recommended pressures are lower than what is in the doors, unless you are allowed over 2 tonnes on each axle.
