Americus tire pressures


Recommended Posts

I just bought a newer TV and the tires looked new but when I got home and looked them over it says Max psi 44 lbs,these are Americus All terrain 265/70 R18 since all my other tire had a max pressure of 80 psi I am a tad on the confused side. Any thoughts out there? TIA

According to this description the Americus All terrain 265/70 R18 has a load index of 116 and Load Range SL. According to this chart, a load index of 116 is 2756#. This article provides an explanation of what the Load Range: SL designation means. The Goodyear Wrangler 265/70R18 tires on my truck have a load index of 124/121; 3527# single, 3197# dual; Load Range E.

Best decision you have made for your RVing future. Remember, RV tires do not wear out the age out.\

"Also check the mfg date of the tires, sounds like a tire that was put on to sell the RV."


Read original post.  It says "TV" not "RV".
