    Does this sound right...I just contacted BFG and they told me that for the 255 75 17 BFG Mud Terrain T/A KM, I need 45 PSI. I have a 2011 TRD 4 door long box. The OEM says 29 PSI (inside driver door) for 265 65 17. I am concerned about uneven tire wear.

    Has anyone had these tires for a while? Which PSI do you run and does this work for you? Does 45 PSI sound right?

    Did the test, it gave me 38 front 30 back. I thought this was quite a big difference though I understand that the front is heavier. I was thinking of giong 34-34 so when I rotate regularly, I should be ok. I wanted to make sure I was ok so I called BFG and gave them the tacoma info and they cam up with 45. I cant see how that would produce even wear but then again, I am no expert.

    Has anyone tried this type of tire and run something close to 45 PSI? I kind of like the idea but dont want to wear out the middle :)
