Isn't 44 too high? I thought 40 was max?guinnessjim wrote:i run my tires at about 44psi for general road and hwy use, but decrease accordingly when offroad. you have some AT tires....might want to think about a stiffer ride (e.g., higher pressure) for the better gas mileage. NVSteve is running the same tire (slightly different size, i think)....might PM him for specifics on his tire pressure/wear)

If they are light truck LT tires, they have to be inflated higher than a P tire. P tires are not made for loads, whereas LT tires are & require more psi: for a 2000lb load, a P tire would need 35psi & a LT tire would need 50psi-just random numbers as an example. Most of the LT tires have MAX PSI printed on the sidewalls at 50-80psi +.guinnessjim wrote: Isn't 44 too high? I thought 40 was max?
Anyways, I run my tires at 30 psi and rotate the tires every 12000km.
Yea man. I worked my way up from the stock-ish settings of around 33psi by 5lb increments until I found a ride that wasn't too stiff but not sloppy. Even around 45psi it feels a bit washy. But it also appears I run one of the largest size tires both in sidewall and width so if I was down a size or two I'm sure it'd feel as good or better with lower pressure. I'll be doing that as soon as these wear out.KEVSTER wrote:Damn,,,. some high numbers guys...
