    I got installed today rims and tires for my 03 Tacoma I got 16x8 gunners and 265/75/16 bf's at. The shop set the tires at 45 psi!!! I think that's way to high. So Im thinking to lower them to 36 psi. What do you all recommend for best ride quality? Thanks in advance.

    it all depends on what your driving. hwy drive for road trip 45 is perfect. around town 36-38 ish is good,or less depends on suspension.

    I run 40psi front and 38psi rear with no weight in the bed around town with minimal HW driving. Long road trips they go to 45psi front and 42 rear. If i haul or tow something i put the rear equal with front for whatever driving i'm doing. off road they go down to 12-15psi depending on how soft the terrain is.

    Feels like it did when it was stock. Then again it's a truck so I'm not super worried about that. When the shop put them on they were stiff as hell so I checked the pressure. It was over 50.

    when I had BFG At's.. I ran 40psi in all four tires.. the more aired up they are the better gas mileage .. 45 might be a little much but I never had a problem w/ 40psi

    I ran mine at 40 over the summer to see if mileage improved - it did a bit. Maybe 20-30 miles more per tank. Ride's a little rougher, but it is a truck :D

    I'm running 33"s, so that had a significant impact on my mileage...

    I run 15lbs on the trails and 32 in the winter.

    The reason mine calls for 45psi is stock tires on truck are bfg all terrains. Also my truck is a Baja.

    well damn mine are way too high!! just got new tires on yesterday and we set them at 48 up front and 42 in the back... casings say max is 65psi

    rides a little rough but not too bad really, guess I'l drop them a little

    fwiw - TW Warden on BFG AT 265/75/16

    edit: dropped to 43/38 and the ride is noticeably better!
