This is from the DOT's website:
Maximum Permissible Inflation Pressure:
This number is the greatest amount of air pressure that should ever be put in the tire under normal driving conditions.DaveinOlyWA wrote:the max pressure on the sidewall is for ultimate safety margins. u can, under "normal" circumstances, easily exceed the rating by 50% with minimal compromise to your safety.
a true and reasonable max tire pressure cannot be advertised due to inaccuracies measuring the pressure coupled with the limited common sense of the person filling the tire so therefore the max rating has a VERY comfortable margin of safety built in
