The pressure chart at http://www.ntta.co.uk/law/trailers/load_pressure.htm
shows your tyres as having a max axle load of 1550 Kg at 65 psi.

You can afford to reduce the pressure pro-rata with your max load - which
would bring it down to about 58/59 psi.

Thanks very much, Roger. That seems an awful lot of pressure compared to
the car - but I suppose they are carrying more weight.

Yes indeed - but your two van tyres are carrying as much weight as is
carried by four tyres on many cars. The tyres are also much heavier duty
than car tyres and can stand - and need - the higher pressures to support
the load.
