Speak for yourself. Some of us do indeed run high performance
wheelbarrows, and losing control in a turn with a full load of compost
onboard could be very ugly indeed.

I generally keep mine at 92.5 pounds (cold).

Mine is 35. I know this because I have to fill the darn thing up every

time
I use it - it has a slow leak so I always have to drag out the compressor.

Take it to a full-service tire store (one that also does farm-industrial
tires) and pay them 20 bucks to put a new tube or whatever in it. I did that
for a handtruck with leaky Chinese tubes in the tires, and it was worth the
money to watch the big tire guy fighting with those tiny rims, jumping on
them to set the beads, etc. I about bust a gut trying not to laugh. And it
hasn't leaked down in 8 years.

I just put air in it when it looks low, until its solid. If it compresses
too much with a load I know I need some air.

I have an old wheelbarrow with an inflatable tube tire. I have repaired
a hole in it but need to know what the air pressure should be when I
fill it. There is a label on the wheel rim that I believe gives the
pressure, but the numbers are obscured. Any ideas?

Whatever pressure makes the tire "look good" when fully loaded.

If yer hauling sawdust or garden debris, maybe 15 lbs.
A big load of rocks in a 5 CF barrow, probably 40
YMMV
