Trailer tyre pressures

I'm a new member so you may have to be gentle with me here!

I'm supposed to be launching my rib for the first time tomorrow morning and was just wondering if anyone knew what the tyre pressures should be on the trailer. It's a 5m Ribeye with a Yamaha 60 2-stroke to give you an idea of the weight. The boat is on a Ribeye badged trailer.

Thanks

If its a single axle around 35psi, I would rather to hard than soft less chance of sway.

Jon, the max tyre pressure should be stamped on the tyre along with the max load etc.

Are the tyre pressures not marked on the trailer data plate?

Conflicting information!

Thanks for the responses - the trailer says 60psi and the tyres say 40psi. I went with the tyres and it was fine. Fantastic day out but fairly rough for the first time - can't wait for next weekend.
