Hi.

We have a 2015 MB Burford.

Mercedes say to run 52 psi in the front tyres and 75 psi in the back. What tyre pressures do other Burford owners run. I wish to soften the teeth rattling ride. 

Any suggestions?

Cheers

Use the continental tyre pressure chart in fact sheet section for your axle loads.

I have a Hymer MLT 580 which is roughly the same as a Burford in terms of base vehicle, chassis, low profile body, weight etc. On the manufacturer’s tyre pressures the ride was on the hard side, so I now run it at about 62 front and rear, which has made a significant difference. I check the temperature of the tyres at stops just with my hand, and even in the summer at continental temperatures, I’ve had no problems. It’s worth experimenting.

The pressures I was using on my burford were 52psi on the front and 65psi on the rear and found that seemed to soften the ride.
 I also kept a watch on the tyrepal system for temperature rises and had no problems even during the hot days this summer.
 Just changed to a winchcombe (similar size and weight) and when it was delivered the tyres were all at 58psi but I have now set them as 52psi front and 65psi rear the same as the burford.        Hope this is helpful

Continental Tyres recommend 46F and 68R for my Winchcombe.

Hi we have a 18 plate Burford and we run as the Mercedes plate.
54f. 75r and it is not such a harsh ride.🤣
