Tire pressure

I was just reading a thread about tire pressure and was just wondering what everyone ran in theirs. It should be about the same, im just wondering if anyone is extreme and runs like 25 or 40.

Front = 35 cpsi
Rear = 28-30 cpsi

(cpsi: cold pounds per square inch)

those pressures allow my tires to have a full contact patch

35 all the way give or take a few pounds. When I go hunting back home I run about 45. Keeps the thorns out better if you tires are like rocks

Make a section of ur tire with chalk, run it until it makes one full revolution and see how the contact pathc matches. adjust pressure according.

i run the ranger at 33-35 front and rear with 285/75/16s, same for my F150 with 33x12.50x15s.
