Truck/Tow Vehicle Tire Pressure

Recommended Posts

ahopkinsVTX

What does everyone run for tire pressure in their tow vehicle tires? Manufacture recommended pressure or something different?

Specifically on my truck I have General Grabber AT2 e-rates tires. I think these are a bit bigger than the stock tires. Should I run them at the manufacture suggested pressure or different?

I run mine at 42 rather than the 35? On the door panel. My tires have a higher load rating and max pressure than stock, so I just picked a pressure that keeps the tread square so they don't wear funny.

I run anywhere from half way between door and max up to the max depending on how much crap I have in the truck.

Recommended pressure and no more than the recommended speed.

Recommended door jam pressure +3-4 psi.

Door jam specs almost always leave me with under inflated uneven wear. +3-4 usually gets me very close.

70psi in the for the summer months when I'm towing/hauling. Otherwise 60psi most of the rest of the year. They have a max psi of 80 and are load range e 10 ply

80 front 65 in the rears, just like for says. Ran all 6 at 60 for a while, front tires did not fare well, so now running 80.

I run 40psi in my stock 20's. Door sticker says 35 so I guess I'm part of the 3-4* over sticker club.

Limit on the tire in summer when towing, and at the lower end during winter.

I think these are a bit bigger than the stock tires.

If you're running larger (width and/or diameter) you can, and probably should, run a lower than recommended pressure. This will keep the same load carrying and tire wear characteristics.
