  • Tyre pressures

    Hi everyone,

    I know this topic is always a hot one as it comes to a personal choice (between ride comfort and tyre wear).

    I have some 265/70/15 on my NH and have been trialling with tyre pressures.

    At the moment, I have it set at what the placard says, 28psi on the front and 30psi at the rear.

    Ive had problems with my steering being a bit vague and "wandering" although having the pressures at 28 and 30 seem to have reduced the vagueness and wandering slightly. I know that some of my suspension components need to be replaced and Im hopeing once this is done, the steering will feel alot better.

    For the time being though, do you think that 28-30 psi is too low? I had the tyres at 35-38 previously although I felt all the vibrations through the steering wheel.

      tyre pressure

      it depends on

      the surface you are driving
      the Tyre size
      the Tyre construction
      the load you are carrying
      the temperature you are inflating them
      the speed you are running

      and finally, a video you should watch.

      you can wind forward to 2min.

      a generall saying this is good or not good pressure does not fit at all.

      the tyre pressure mentioned from the manufacturer are for the original tyres for the original purpose (on road driving) and its a optimum from comfort and fuel economy.

        I used to have an NJ with same size tyres......used to run them at 32 all round with no weight in the rear which suited my needs.

          I run 36 in all tyres which suits - used to run at 40 but found I get better wear and more comfort at 36.

            When I was replacing the old 33s I have on the NL recently at the local tyre shop I also decided they do wheel alignment and that sorted my wandering steering once and for all.

            IF you have not had wheel alignment done for quite a while I suggest you give it a go.
