The definitive answer is to put the van on a weighbridge and get the weight of each axle in full holiday mode, full diesel and water, clothes, wife, dog, you, food, clothes and everything else you'd normally have on board. Email Continental with the figures and tyre size and they will give you an answer. Generally rear axle will come back close to 80psi and front around 50/60psi depending on the van. After that you can experiment to get the best ride.

Once you have the weights you should find pressures in Continental documents on their web site.
