goodyear wrangler mt/r tire pressure

i've had the new goodyear wrangler mt/r with kevlar for awhile now and i was wondering if anyone else had them and what tire pressure they are using. mine are the mt/r 32x11.5 on cragar soft 8's 15x8. they say 50 psi cold but i checked the other day n ther were running 32-34 psi so i just wanted to know if that sounds right of if they need more air. also i checked the pressure about an hour or less after i drove 6 to 8 miles.

You go by what your door sticker says. Usually, 32-35ish.

i run 35 in my goodyear wrangler duratracs. but run however much you want. just dont exceed what it says on the sidewall. Most tire shops will put 35 to 40 in oversized tires

i figured the door sticker was for stock tires which were 29x9.5 but these are bigger so i figured they'd take more pressure but wasn't sure exactly how much

i would run 35 in yours...thats a good pressure for all tires in my opinion. Everytime a vehicle comes in to work with oversized tires thats what i put in them. and thats what were told to put in them

also doesn't the pressure increase as you drive and as the tires get hotter so if they took 50 cold then 35 to 40 sounds about right in my opinion

tire pressure isnt size dependent.. a lot of it is to do with the compound, sidewall strength and vehicle.

I run 35psi in my 32'' MT/R's and air down to 25 offroad

I know, I would have bought KM2'S if my truck was a DD but the MT/R's are grippier offroad in almost every way so far so still worth it for me

yea from what i have heard they don't last long as daily drivers if you don't maintain them. but you should be able to get 30,000 to 35,000 miles on them if you keep up on the pressure and rotation

Some people might tell you things like they need an unheard of amount of wheel weights to balance properly, they suck in mud..etc but thats all BS.

for more on road driving go KM2 for more offroad driving go MT/R unless you have some other options as well, I can only comment on those two

I run 34psi in my 31x10.5x15 Goodyear Wrangler Territories ( the Canadian version of the Duratracs)

The door sticker does nothing for you if you're running with anything OTHER then what's listed. Aftermarket parts don't always follow OE requirements or specs.

Thanks for that, but Territories are NOT available in the US, so my description was to help our Southern neighbours who may not know what they are, understand it.
