Just installed new tire ?

I recently installed Michelin ms2.s 265/70/16 on my (Stock)2010 reg cab. I did the chalk test and ended up with 32psi. There so much better then the stock Dunlop 245/75/16 . The only thing I've noticed is that the ride is bouncer. Do you think I should raise the psi, or is it that the shocks are having a harder time handling the extra weight of the new tire's ( 5lbs. or each tire) ?

The shocks aren't effected by the weight of the tires. Unless you go airborne.

I think what you are noticing is the wider tire (265). I installed the same tire and size on my regular cab. The Michelins are confidence inspiring aren't they, compared to the Dunlops?

That listing is for the factory tires .
