I want to make sure I'm travelling with the right amount of air in the tyres - base vehicle is 2013 Fiat Ducato Maxi with Continental 225/75R 16 CP VanoCamper tyres fitted.
My tyre gauge is old & doesn't go very high psi, so went to local petrol stn & pumped them up to 50 psi. I eventually found the owners handbook and it says in there that they sound be 5.5 bar which is 79 psi! Is that right?! On the tyre wall its says that the max pressure is 5.5. I can't imagine what the ride would be like with 79 psi front & back!
Most of the time of course the van is not loaded & with empty fresh & grey water tanks.
Any thoughts/ info welcome.

Thanks Ken - a handy site.
Pressures shown are for a full load, so I guess scale pressures back when not loaded.............. to how much I wonder?

Just Google that's how I found it just bought a Lunar 58 so had to get mine at the same time.l ask Google silly questions and most of the time it comes back with the answer that I am looking for also I alway fill my tyres at a tyre fitters there's a gas that is thicker than air and they hold the pressure better I cannot get down to check my tryres and have to get someone else to check them

Continental are good at supplying specific information for your tyre pressures.

You can phone or email them with your van details, particularly weighbridge total load and separate axle loads.They will then tell you what pressures your tyres should be. You will be surprised!

Here is message from Continental to us:

The best way to get accurate weight is to load the vehicle to the maximum that you would use, ie full water tanks, luggage, people etc and the get the individual axle weight done at your local weighbridge. If you then call back with this I can adjust the pressures.

When I bought mine last November I checked with the dealer, who kindly wrote the PSI's on the sun blind. I have the same Chassis on my Swift Voyager and put 75 PSI in the front and 80 PSI in the rear. Rides very nicely on those pressures.

My Ducato based van has 5.5 bar as the set pressure, so that sounds reasonable

Our AS Clubman has the pressures inside the driver's door. They're a bit higher than the handbook for the base vehicle (VW T4). Front 43, rear 49.

2024 = 11 sites / 23 nights. 2023 = 9/23. 2022 = 13/35. 2021 = 11/29. 2020 = 4/20. 2019 = 13/35. 2018 = 20/33. 2017 = 10/22. 2016 = 19/33. 2015 = 15 sites / 27 nights. Didn't count 1976 to 2014.
