Hi Micky:

What is the maximum tyre pressure written on the sidewall of your tyre?

And what brand of tyre do you have?

Without the information above, I can only give you what the tyre pressures are recommended for your Sprinter, which will probably be wrong.

I have the Michelin a/s LT 225/75/r60 , the Sprinter is the 2005 hightop passenger/ 140' . I go with 55psi in the front and 80lbs in the back. I'm a shuttle driver here at the airport and at times I can get a lot of weight back there

Here's someplace to start...

You have lower profile tires, so you're really limited on capacity on that short sidewall, especially for the back of your van.

Best bet is to look at the Dunlop Load & Inflation Tables, if any, specific for your tyre model.
