Hi I am a proud new owner of a Dodge 50 horsebox.  Looked at a few and settled on a J plate that seemed to have better bodywork than others and didn't appear to have any of the pitfalls that Karrier kindly informed me to look out for (very very good guide thank you Karrier)
Anyway I wondered if anyone could advise me on tyre pressures. The tyres look a bit squidgy and the lady I bought it from didn't have a clue as to the required pressures.  Some people have said to me read the max psi off the tyre but others have said thats not adequate as it depends on the vehicle.  

So help! any ideas welcome. The dodge is 5.6t gross and approx 4.2t unladen.

Many thanks for reading.
