    My basic rule of thumb with LT tires. Start at 32 and adjust from there.

    No I have the 2" OME lift but I think it'd be fine on stock (depending on your wheels) if you remove the front mudflaps and max out your caster to 2.3-2.5, I have stock UCAs so that's about the max I can get from them.

    Don't fill it anywhere near that! lol that's the max pressure before the tire explodes. I run my E-load coopers at 28psi all around, anything higher than 30 and it feels like you're sitting on a wooden roller coaster. Very bumpy ride.

    If you want to find the pressure that you SHOULD have them at (which is specific to your exact vehicle) then do the chalk test.

    That isn't the max before ethe tires explode. That is the minimum psi at Max load. Burst pressure is around 200psi, even higher on E rated lt tires.

    I wouldn't go to 80
    i was thinking in the 40psi range I was just getting a group pic of what everyone else is running to see if I was in the right starting area.

    I start at 35. The next time you drive a dusty road you will see how much of the tire is hitting the road. You want the entire tread surface to be contacting the road evenly. It's usually 30-36 psi on e loads.
