Trailer tire pressure

My trailer has been sitting for a while and I wanted to take it to the gas station today to check the tire pressure. Great idea, right? I have NO idea what the tire pressure should be. I haven't had the trailer for very long so I'm still on the learning curve.

Is it marked on a door like on a car?

Can I read the tire somehow to find out the recommended tire pressure? Does anyone have a simple explanation of what to look for?

.

A Rough estimate because tires differ is to look at Max Pressure listed on the Tire and subtract 10%, ie 85lb. Rating put 76lbs in tire.

I guess that's where I'm confused. There's a lot of things on the side of the tire and I'm not sure which one is the pressure. Is there a how to for reading tires?

It should be somewhere near the outside seam. You'll see a lot of words, then 'maximum XX PSI'. That's your max tire pressure.

Thank you!

So to be sure I understand.. The picture says 110, so for that tire you would take 10% off and fill to 99?

Correct.

I've never owned any tire that are 110 max PSI, though. Mine have always been 35 or 41 max PSI.

That was a sample picture only

Whatever your Actual tires Says take off 10%

Some tires are 35lb., some 45lbs, some 65lbs., some 85lbs, etc. The pic was reference only to show where it may be listed on Your tire

Gotcha :) I just used the numbers in the picture to make sure I got it.

Thank you both. I'm going to be hauling it to the gas station later today and see where I stand.

You need to buy a tire guage so you can check the pressure at home. It needs to be part of your basic tool kit for the truck and trailer. Any auto supply store will have them. Or WalMart, Target, etc.
