    Just put on a winter set of the BFG KO2 265/75r16 Load E tires with a new slightly larger tire on my TRD off road 2016. So what pressure are you running and how well have they been wearing?
    Thanks

    I know the chalk test but I am looking for someone that has some miles on the tire to confirm the setting is a good one.

    It doesn't matter who runs what pressure. It won't tell you anything because their truck's weight load is guaranteed to be different from yours. From the amount of gas in the tank, to the number of burgers they had for lunch, the weight will vary and affect the ideal tire PSI. You'll get twenty different opinions between 40 and 50PSI.

    Do the chalk test, draw some boobs on the sidewalk while you've got the chalk in hand, pound back a beer and enjoy having the right PSI for your truck.

    Fourth, Fail, what's the difference, EH? :D

    Though after watching the "Highway Through Hell," show, now I want to move to Hope B.C.

    Just had the same tires installed on stock wheels, I checked the pressure and it's saying 30psi. That can't be right. What is the correct psi. Thanks

    No, you really don't want to move to Hope. The only people ever found in Hope are the ten local residents and the two thousand people passing through it at any given moment. The entire economy of Hope, BC, hinges on the four gas stations.

    We have cooler places to live around here! :D

    Can't afford all the other cooler placers, with the way the Chinese/HK money is raising all the prices there.

    I want to own one of those gas stations :D

    Oh man, you've no idea. I've got a large (815sq ft) 1-br condo in a suburb, about 35mins drive from downtown Vancouver. For the price of this condo I can move down to Ohio and buy a new house on a couple acres. Considering it, too.

    I have some idea. I am in HK a lot, so I know how they are sending all the money up there. Where I am at now its $700/sq feet. My coworker just bought a place 17 miles from me, he is by the water, paid $2300/sq feet.

    I wouldn't go to Ohio. If I were to move to another state (already lived in NE/NW/Midwest), I would go to Texas. I get the warm weather, and no income tax.

    That's insane. I'd never do something like that. I want more land, peace & quiet and less people, so moving further from a large city appeals to me. As does not having a million-dollar mortgage.

    Ohio was just a random suggestion. The problem with Texas is that it's full of Texans :D.

    But there is so much land, you can live away from the Texans :D
