    Default Off road tyre pressure

    Hi, my off road trailer got A/T tyres on, but feels bumpy on tar, what tyre pressure do you use on your trailers? Tar and Gravel?

    I found with the XT140 it bounces on tar a lot more with low pressure, when it is light. I usually pump it to 2.0 for tar. The trailer weighs 600 kg empty.

    The kalfie have leaf springs, and is fully kitted with fridge ext, but I think I am on 2,2 bar currently, will drop it to 1,9-2,0 and see.
