    Just put new tyres on but can't find any inf. on tyre pressures. Asked previous owner but didn't seem to have a clue! Have put 55 in front and 60 on rear but that is going from searches on various Motorhomes. A more accurate figure would be helpful. I only use the van for myself and dog so don't carry excessive load for extra weight.
    Tyres are 215/70 R15C

    Thanks
    Maureen

    Best bet is to Email the tyre manufacturer with the van's max axle loads (from the VIN plate.. )

    The pressures they suggest will give you a starting point that you can adjust down from if the ride is a bit harsh.

    I find that 58 to 60 lb/in2 in the front & 62 in the rear suits my Starspirit. Same size tyres as yours.

    Oh, I have air suspension and solar panels so perhaps should add a bit more....

    In my owners manual pack, I have the one from the converters, which for my motorhome is 5.2 bar in both front and rear. My brief maths puts that at 75psi roughly. That's on a Sundance 630l.
    So 60 on a smaller van isn't a bad starting point.

    Hi we have a Starfire and use 55psi front & 65psi rear, works for us Autocruise recommended these,
    any higher makes for a bumpy ride
