Tyre pressure

Iím sorry to ask such a stupid question but im really not sure what pressure I should be running the trailer tyres at!

Itís a twin wheel trailer
Boat + trailer and sundries = 2000kg
13Ē rims
Tyre wall says max psi is 65

Any suggestions?

Go with the 65psi tyres are only run lower on cars for comfort and even tyre wear neiter are much of a concern on a trailer keeping the flex out of the tyre helps them run cooler

I go 37 on mine so it doesn't shake the crap out of the trailer.

I go 85-90 PSI with 195/60/12 Maxxmiler tyres on 5 x 6.5" rim so not very relevant but it show the range of options.
