tire pressure question

I have the 31x10.50 BGFs on my new alcoas, what tire pressures do ya'll recommend?. I usually run 32-34 psi up front bc of engine weight and 28 psi in the back unless hauling something. What tire pressures do ya'll recommend? it just seems that with 32 psi up front, there seems to be a bigger bulge then im accustomed to where the tire and asphault meet. any suggestions would be great.

I have 15x8 and 31s and I have been running around with 35 psi...after some wear (25k miles), I can see that the middle of the tire is wearing faster than the outsides, so I'd say 32 sounds about right... just keep up on rotations and you'll be good

I laughed when I got my new tires installed. They filled them to 40psi, but told me I should be running around 50psi as stated on the tire. I just paid them for the mounting/balancing service, grabbed my keys, and left. Needless to say, I aired them down to 34psi when I got home.

Yeah, I say about 32 psi or so. I have a buddy that wont put anything less than 60 psi in any tires he has.

I've always had mine at 40psi, I'm guessing I should take it down a little.
