The tire doesn't give you a pressure recomendation. It will only list the absolute maximum load the tire can take and the pressure needed to haul that weight. My tires list a maximum of 3,640 lbs at 65 psi. I will never get anywhere close to that loading on each tire or consequently that air pressure. The Jeep would need to weigh 14,560 lbs, I'm about 10,000 lbs back of that!

Eh, just add some offroad bumpers...

I run my tires at 40 psi. I've never had any sort of issue.

I wonder if these silent armor tires have extra stiff sidewalls? I drove a Sahara, rubicon and my friends 07 X and never noticed every little bump or rock in the road.
Has anyone else tried the new silent armor goodyears?
I switched to the Silent Armors and the tire shop had them at around 41. Why I don't know. I dropped them to the door recommended pressure of 37psi and they ride beautifully- quiet and decent (for a Jeep) mileage- better than with the BFGs.

Good to know. Your the first reply on the silent armor and I am glad to hear its not them. It's my first jeep since a 1979 grand Cherokee base model and I don't remember it being as rough. It's a little more harsh than the other wranglers I drove. Do they get broke in with some miles? Or is the Moab have a different shock set up? Does anyone know.

I run my DuraTracs at 32-33psi. If I had shorter gears I'd run them lower.

i would make a rude comment but i will save the wear and tear on my keyboard , all vehicles are gone over before they are delivered to the customer , i may suggest that the tires are a few pounds high to keep people from coming in the garage every day with tire light on after a temp drop.Did u ever think that some members of this site actually work at a jeep dealership and take great pride in their work ?? i happen to be one of them and have been for 9 years i even have a license that says i can not only repair any part of your jeep or any vehicle but also put air in tires( i think the air in the tires part is in big letters across the front lol) , if i didn't take pride in what i do for a living i wouldn't be doing it . even with people like you making comments like this i still take pride in what i do .
