What tire pressure do you run on Mud Tires?

Just wanting to find what the 'about" airpressure should be with a set of 265's Mud Terrains. stock rims. When i had them installed they didnt lower the pressure after seating the bead and i felt every crack in the road. lowered down to 30psi and went down this small trail i always go down to feel like im a real offroader. it still felt a little stiff so i went down to 28. THEN i went and got my oil changed at wallyworld and the bastards aired them up to 40psi. So again i had to lower it down to 28. they do seem to fatten up between bottom of the rim and the ground.

just wanted to get some input on what yall ran.

I have 31x1050s and i run the front around 28-30 dpending on how hot it is outside, and the rear about 35.

But offroad.... I've aired them down to 10psi but that was just around my house. I noticed a big, big difference even with an AT, but i haven't aired down offroad, yet... too afraid to break a bead.... but now i have my fullsize spare, and soon I will have an air compressor.

so maybe i need to bump it up some, but even at 30 they seem to ride rougher. i thought the mud terrains were soft compound therefor tought it would be a little smoother over rough surfaces.
i do love when i come to a stop i can feel the ground contact every ****.

i would leave it around 28, maybe a little bit more in the front due to more weight.

or better yet. wet down a spot on the pavement, drive the truck through it and on the dry side see if all the tire contacts the pavement. if it doesnt air them down, if they do maybe put some more air in them and try it agian. you will soon find the perfect spot for best contact patch and wear.

I'm running 36 front 33 rear. 33x10.5 on a 15x7 load range C. I had to up the psi in the front due to the shoulders showing wear.

There are a lot of factors to take into account, Weight & weight distribution of truck, Width of tire vs width of wheel, load range of tire.

The 265/75/16 BFGs are a load range D. Higher than what is needed for our trucks so they are probably going to ride a little stiff.

Why do you run the front lower than the rear?

about the same somewhere around 32 I did a calculation back when i was in Calculas about the load range of the tire that holds at max psi deviding that with the load of the truck v.s. 4 tires and it came out to be around 31-33 for my truck
