Tire Pressure On a Wheel House

Recommended Posts

This seems like a simple question but still confuses me. My radial tires say 2540 lbs max load at 65 lbs pressure. My house weighs 4450 lbs. Should I run them at max pressure of 65 lbs? There's no door sticker to tell you like on a truck or car.

Hoo boy...that's not real good, Hawg.....but ya, max pressure on those, if you're going to run them....but, you're over the safe limit or close (figuring in gear) ...Not trying to be a smartie, either. 

 

 

The tire’s load rating, or “max load,” indicates the individual tire’s safe maximum load-carrying capacity when inflated to its recommended pressure. Never exceed a tire’s maximum load rating (the limit that is molded into the tire sidewall) or the maximum vehicle load limit shown on the vehicle tire placard, whichever is less. The tire is designed and constructed to handle a specific maximum load, and overloading will result in a buildup of excessive heat in the tire, which could lead to tire failure.

The load index number, which appears on the tire sidewall, is an assigned number that corresponds to the tire’s load-carrying capacity. Alphanumeric tires will display an alpha code that indicatesmaximum load. The letter can range from “A” to “N” (the higher the letter, the greater the load-carrying capacity at a given inflation pressure).

The max load and maximum inflation numbers found on the tire sidewall indicate the maximum load that can safely be carried and the maximum allowable tire pressure. The construction of the tire (belts, bead, carcass, liner) dictates the tire’s ability to withstand pressure. The stronger the reinforcements, the greater pressure the tire can h

I'd stop at least a few times to let heat dissipate. Max psi of that 65 lbs, because it's the tire sidewall flex that will get ya into trouble and build up the heat.

Figgered ya did. Just hate to see anyone lose their house due to a blowout. Watched it happen before. I'm just really "over-cautious" on stuff....

I think most of the time trailer tires are recommended to be operated at max air pressure. It should also help the tire wear more evenly and help prevent a blow-out.

Rebs, it’s actually 2640 but I know you know your stuff on this. I should run at 65#s right. I’m actually 20 some % under max

Yup, Hawg, 65# on a cold tire. (measure them now, before it's like 10* out.....best temp is around 50-70* for a "true" temp, as air pressure will actually drop a tad when it's below the freezing point. Some high-end car guys in my club (worse than me) actually do the nitrogen tire fill, which IMO, hasn't been significantly proven yet. I just make sure my air tank/compressor  is drained after EVERY use, and my filter is working to keep out moisture. I also do a tiny squirt of WD-40 on my Schrader valve once a year in winter. ((keylock holes in doors too)  Do NOT fill tires at an outside air hose place in winter!!!!!!!!!!! (Or anytime, really)  OK, enough of tires 101 for today. I need a Pepsi.  :grin:

I'm a Pepsi guy! And I'll flip ya for the buy! No slow learner that I see...not you, anyway. :P Just glad I can help! (I hope I did....I think we all gave it a whirl)

    • Hmmm.  My cheapest camera is a Wildgame Innovations unit but I haven’t been a great fan of it.  It’s not the NANO version but though, just a cheap one I picked up in a small shop during a hunt cuz I felt I NEEDED one right then.   I do like my old Moultrie and am looking at the M50i as a much updated version of it.   Still comparing their line up.  If I just bought now, that’s what I’d go with.   That WGI 360 sounds like something I have to check out!
    • I have been a Wild Game Innovations fan for most of my time using cams.  I really really like the NANO version they put out.  Compact, only take 4 AA batteries, great battery life and the pictures have been very good quality.  That being said, last year I won a Moultrie Game Spy 2 at a company party and have been very impressed with it.  Same as the Nano, takes only 4 batteries and pictures are very good as well.  These two cameras are now my "go to" and I won't be needing to spend  100's on other cameras when these work great.  The one camera that I am thinking about getting though is the WGI 360 degree camera.  Supposed to be able to take pictures 360 degrees so you don't miss anything moving behind where a normal camera can't detect them.
    • yeah the last couple years have been rather tough for me, but all is good and I can't wait to get back into the stand.  Are you still working the Deployed Soldier/Disabled Soldier hunt at Ripley?  We stopped going as it was just too early in the season and weather was always so darn warm.  Wish they would have held it right prior to the "big" hunts at the end of the month.  Always a good time though.    You'll hear more from me in the time to come and look forward to hearing all your reports of the big one!!!
    • Good yo hear from you again!  Hope your search for property goes well and your time in stand is fruitful.
    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
