Uuuh, that's the MAX tire pressure, not the pressure you should run. Look inside the drivers side door. There is a sticker that gives the recommended tire pressures for front and rear. Mine says 32 psi both front and rear for 275's at all 4 corners. My rear are 315's so I have them at 34 psi.

My sticker says 30 psi. I recently went to 315x35x17" w/11" rims on the rear and I don't know what to run. The original owner had 35 psi all around and the tires were evenly worn. What to do?

The owner's manual calls for 32 PSI. But I agree with VET 350, 35 PSI does it for me. Handling feels tighter.

I run 33 figuring that they'll heat up to 35 on their own.
