    Now that you have been running for a while, i wonder if you can help me out with this, what is the pressure that you found to work the best for tire wear on 285's? I only off road (dunes) like every two weekends a month. I have been running 35 psi cold so far. Just looking for some input from those that have been about 5k on them and if they are showing any wear on them. I am running same in the front and rear. 99% of the time is without any load in the bed. Thanks

    like jhodge83, I probbably don`t qualify either, but what the heck. `01 dbl cab TRD, 265/70-16`s 27-28 front 26 rear (psi). factory sticker on door recommends 26 psi front and rear. The truck is primarily street driven.Tires wear good with these pressures.30-32 psi and they wear too much in the middle.
