Tire pressure

Two of my tires require different amounts of air pressure. I had two of them changed due to blow outs the other two are still good tires. The two newer tires say to run at 65psi and the two older tires say to run at 50. The sticker on the trailer also says to run at 50. Do I just adjust each tire to itís required psi or run all 4 at 50 or all 4 at 65.

You didn’t note the ply or load rating of the tires. It seems you have mismatched tires. Depending on the weight of your trailer gives you tire inflation pressures. Pressures listed on the tires are max load pressures and those pressures depend on load rating. I would highly recommend matching all the tires, trying to guess pressures for two different sets of tires would not be something I would do! Over inflation and under inflation are the two biggest causes of blowouts!
Also whoever sold or mounted your tires should have known better or intended to just get you to where you were going.
