Not directly I'm afraid, but if you want to use the van before getting a definitive answer you couldn't go far wrong with 60psi front and 70psi rear.

If you do a bit of Googling and ask about the make and size etc., of the tyres you have fitted, you will probably find some manufacturers' recommendations.

Hope this helps

Speak to the tyre manufacturer with the van details, they will advise you of correct pressure.

Hope this helps.

Hi judy t,

The proper way to approach this issue is to take your van to a weighbridge in your normal running order.
Armed with the weights for each axle you can then set the pressures for your particular tyres.

This chart will give you a pretty accurate guide;

We always used to run the Executive (similer van) 59lb front 65lb rear with no problems

Tyre Pressures

Post by HertsPhil on Mon Nov 28, 2016 5:10 pm

Not sure if you are a Caravan Club member but their Technical advice section were very helpful to me when I purchased a 1996 Boxer Executive a few months back. After finding out what tyres I had and what loading I would run at they suggested suitable pressures. This was after referring to various graphs etc they have in their office. So far I have had no problems running at 50 PSI all round but I keep a close eye on how the tyres look and also the temperatures on the side walls after a good run. Hope that helps.
