tire pressure for 17b

Hello!

I know Dave told me this when we picked up our Escape in June and I know I have it written somewhere but ... well, you know how that goes. What's the recommended cold inflation tire pressure for the 17b?

Heading out this weekend again and it's time to check 'em before we go.

Klaus

Re: tire pressure for 17b

Here is a link to Goodyear's site listing the tire pressure for each size of tire. The 17B has ST205/75R14 as stock. http://www.goodyearrvtires.com/pdfs/rv_inflation.pdf

Re: tire pressure for 17b

What I didn't note in my reply is that I have 15 inch wheels.

Not sure that that makes a difference. Max pressure is 50 lbs.

There used to be a Dairy Farmer here that had a sign on his mail box: "All I have, I owe to udders!"

Re: tire pressure for 17b

Hi: All...All this talk is "Udderly" ridiculous. My RV Tech. set the pressures at 50 for the 5.0. That's the max. printed on the sidewall of the ST 205 15" Goodyear Marathons. The trailer tows great and rides well under pressure. My last gas mileage was 19.36 miles/Imp. Gal or 16.5 miles/US Gal. running at the double nickle 55 mph. Alf

Re: tire pressure for 17b

As a hint, just make a little label and post it over the wheel well for a permanent reminder of the correct pressure.
