Calling all air heads

Tire pressure is usually a subject that everyone agrees to disagree on but I confused on this one.

This is the manufacturer's label . . .


and I don't know whose label (Sportsmobile?) this is but the difference is major.


The tires maximum pressure BTW are 80psi.

Which label is correct?

Regards,

Keith

Use the Max Cold air pressure you find on the tire as your ultimate guage. Use the weight of your vehicle and the load ratings of your tires to determine how close you need to be to the Max cold pressure on your tires.

The stickers and owners manuals are nice,...but how do you know what tire manufacturer they are for??? Typically you only know a size and not a manufacturer or load range.

Read your tires.
