That might have been me, but I was referring to a Laser Dinghy trailer, which was rated to carry a boat of 120 KG and was in fact carrying a boat that clocked in at 58Kg. The whole assembly clocked in at about 200KG. - If a 3 point turn looked awkward, I could get out, pick the whole lot up by the transom, swivcvel it sideways on the hitch & put the stern where it needed to be.
I am not by any means saying that lower pressure tyres are the way to go in all situations, but "go max" - how do you explain the different tyre pressures as reccommended by car manufacturers when a Dunlop / Michelin / random make 15x195 will fit a couple of Vauxhalls, Fords, Fiats etc ..... and have different inflation pressures for each car, varying again when loaded?
Max means Max. The actual vaue is another discussion entirely!
