goodyear mt/r tire pressure

i ran across a killer deal on 5 moab wheels 2 have new245/75/16 wrangler mt/r tires so i went ahead and ordered 2 more my question is i have an 05 sport my sticker on the door is for the small 15in tires what is the best tire pressure for these to get the best wear pattern i know about the chalk test but since these tires came stock on the rubicon i am sure someone has experimented with the psi thanks

I have the moab wheels (although I dont run mt/r's) and I hae always run my tires ont he road at 32 psi. Off road I usually air down to about 10 psi. Hope that answers your question. It shouldnt matter really on the wheel size. Air the tires up to what the side wall of the tire says is the optimum pressure range.

Im running 34" Traxus mud terrains and they are wearing very well at the 32 psi I run.


Without a Jeep for now...

I was looking at goodyear's web site and most of the MT/R's have white outlined lettering on them. Does anyone know if you can still get the black sidewalls on this tire? Great tire by-the-way!

One side of the MT/R's is blackwalled just like most, if not all tires available

They used to be black sidewalls on both sides. Rubicons used to come with these tires W/O white lettering. Not much into seeing white letters turned to the inside.
