Roger,

    Thanks for all the good information in your articles.  I have a 2021 Wonder Murphy Bed Leisure Travel Van.  It is on the 2020 Ford Transit 350 HD chassis (178 inch wheel base). GVWR is 11,000 lbs, GAWR Front is 4630 lbs and GAWR Rear is 7275 lbs.  It has Hankook 205/75R16C tires.  I can only find this size tire being manufactured by Hankook and Continental.  I also can’t find a tire pressure chart for this size tire.  Can you help me out with a load and pressure chart for this size tire?  Also do you know of any other tire manufacturer making this size tire?   
    Thanks for your help.

Sincerely,

William Robbins

I find the Hankook Dynapro HT RH12 | 205/75R16C 113/111R E

and this has what you need to know as the 113/111 are the Load Index (single & Dual) and for your purposes finding a LT type tire with the same or similar index should give you guidance. Since there will be more people using "C type tires i will try and publish some tables on my blog in a few weeks. For right now I find your tires at 525 kpa (76 psi) rated at 2300 (5070#) axle single and 4360( 9612#) axle dual

Roger,

      Any luck on finding a Load and pressure chart for Hankook or Continental tires in 205/75R16C tire size?
Thanks,
William Robbins

I did a google search on "205/75R16C"  with "" marks and found a number of different brands. But no Load/Infl table. Best to run the inflation on the Certification label.

The European guidelines do not have tables like the US tire companies do, They have a formula  Qr  = reduced load    Qmax = max load capacity    Pr  = reduced inflation    Pref  = the Ref max pressure      Formula   Qr=Qmax x ( Pr/Pref) **0.8  

**   means an exponent so there is no simple direct comparison. If you need to run less than Max Load you will probably need an Excel spreadsheet.

I really do not think it wise to run lower inflation as this just means you have a smaller reserve load.
