    I was at the dealership today, and I have some dunlop tires that are pretty amazing. They had TWO screws in the driver side tire and my wheel kept air in it for at least two weeks. Long story short, when I got my receipt with the work done it said that they filled all tires with 36 psi??? On the side of the door it recommends 29 psi, when I approached the service guy he said that Toyota is wrong and he doesnt know why they put that, but the tires need at least 36 psi...does anyone know of anything like this and could help clear up this question on how much psi to put in stock wheels.

    toyota puts those numbers in to go by as if your truck is fully loaded. i always run my tires about 33/34 in the front and 31/32 in the rear. especially if there is no weight in the bed......i run a lil less back there. you can run more air in your tires...may get better mileage and ride a bit better...............too less air, you can cause them to run hot and wear funny...and your mileage will decrease a bit.

    I have about 25000 on my tires, looking to get some new wheels and as big of a tire as I can without a lift, I lived in the desert for about 3 years, and you can really see where all of the black trim on the truck has taken a beating along with the tires with a little cracking, but besides that they are good.
