    Hi Tilly! A serious question needs a serious answer...

    How old are the tyres on your 1991 base? If they're over 5 years old, they need changing. I've just put Toyo HO9s on mine, they're a Mud & Snow Winter tyre, bought from...


    In November, I did the front at £135 each, plus £10 each fitting locally. Last month, I got a pleasant surprise when I saw they'd dropped to £85.

    Pressures... there's only one way to do this properly. Down to the weighbridge with your motorhome in travel trim, ready to go. Once you've got your axle weights, send a message to the tyre manufacturer. With luck, they'll give you the answer. I did this with my previous continentals. The label on the chassis door pillar said 73psi front; 80psi rear. Continental said 47 psi front; 61psi rear. Now that's a huge difference. I know other folk have had the same sort of response.

    There you go... just trying to be helpful. But I can't help with airride stuff, sorry. :winky:
