    I just got 265-75-16 BFG Mud Terrain KM2 tires installed on my truck. What PSI should I run in them? The shop set them to 35 PSI each, but I want to know what other people in these forums are running on the same tires.

    i think you should just read my build thread ......
    take a paint marker and draw a straight line from one side to the other, go for a drive,

    deflate until the line wears even

    ONLY WAY TO SET THE TIRES PROPERLY

    reason.... your suspension sag, your weight, what you carry in the truck etc...... changes how much they change


    Now if you cant get an even line when filling and deflating there is a good chance you have too much camber/toe

    Bingo!

    Some also use the "chalk test" - both yield the same result.
