    About 34 psi mate. Minimum 32 at least. You can even go up to 36 or even 38 if you are carrying a heavy load.

    I've been running 33psi so i was pretty close. Cheers for that, i'll put 36 in the back next time i'm towing the trailer with my motocross bike.

    It will depend on the tyre. Should be written somewhere on the sidewall. I just run mine at 40 all the time though.

    40 would be a bit too much for a 15. I keep 40 in my 18s. Tyre sidewalls will only show maximum pressure at maximum load, and shouldn't be set at that.

    Lol yeah. My girlfriend has a hyundai eccent or whatever and her old man puts 44psi in the tyres cos thats what the side walls say. I tried telling them the same thing you just wrote but some people are just stubborn..

    About 34psi is perfect for 15"
