    high max tire pressure

    The max pressure on my side walls says 90 psi. That seems to be a very high pressure, compared to what I have been reading on the forum, and manufacturers selling new ones. Any advice on this please? The reason I ask is that I have excess wear on the center treads and there is nothing written on the trailor regarding tire pressure or weights, it is a single trailor made of aluminum, 12 x 4.8 tires, and the 06 fx ho weight is maybe 1000 pounds with a full tank of gas. the trailor is light, i pick it myself when i park in the street after launch put it up against the curb. So any suggestions for the correct tire pressure as the sidewall max is wearing the center tread??? help??

    That seems real high - I keep mine at 45-50. That's why you're wearing the tires in the middle.

    What is the weight rating on the tire sidewall?

    What else does the sidewall say?
    Load range?

    How old are the tires?
