    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    33-35. 40 and up your tires are probably going to wear way faster than you'd like! :eek:

    "The 'Chalk Line Test': Draw a heavy chalk line across all the tread faces. drive slowly forward in a straight line for a few revolutions of the tire. Get out and observe the wear pattern of the chalk. If it has worn away evenly, then the inflation is correct. If either the edge or center of the line is worn first, then the tire is under or over inflated, respectively." from 4crawler site.

    Street driving, 32 PSI at all four corners in roughly 60 degree weather. Offroad I air down to the situation.

    PSI will vary about 1 PSI per 10 degrees of temperature change...also, on a sunny day you'll gain a couple as well. This is why it's important to watch your tire pressure as seasons change.

    The reason i ask is because my ride is really bumpy. I was hoping that by kicking the PSI down to 34-36 it would ease the bumpiness a bit. i dont wanna kill my MPG though.

    I get about 18 MPGs with my 285/75/16 KM2s at ~34 PSI. You just need to drive slow. ;)


    The tires soak up a lot of bumps. :D
