20?

Please, take JYJeep's advice.

TJNewbie I started out with the higher pressure, but the steering felt like I was riding on over inflated beach balls. I dropped it bit by bit and settled at 26 psi with a good contact patch and smooth ride.

I see I forgot something, I meant to say the GoodYear Duratrac 33x12.50x15 tires run best between 28 to 26 psi on a TJ.

TJNewbie which Courser tire is it?
01-18-2012 10:11 AM
nissanman1 I've got a related question, I have Coursers on my Sahara but one has a hole that can't be patched... long story short, to keep from buying a mismatched tire since the AWT is not available I put my Goodyear Wrangler spare one and plan to buy a used cheapo for a spare. Question is: the Coursers have max PSI of 50, the Goodyear has max of 32 psi. Is that going to be dangerous or ride bad. Don't want to kill myself cheaping over a 150.00 tire. but the next full set i get will be more aggressive tread, so i hate to throw money down the drain because the other three are 60% tread

InvertChaos Since you have 30s go with whatever the door frame says. 31-32psi I think

suggerdaddy I thought having lower tire pressure makes it so u have worse mpg
01-05-2012 08:02 PM
suggerdaddy I have 30's

kbwwolf ^^You should never have to run max. Assuming you have aftermarket tires...For 33's you should run about 30-32 PSI. For 35's, 28-30. If your tires are stock, go by your door placard.

If you really wanna dial it in, do a chalk test. See post #54 in the link below.

And here's a visual representation of how the chalk test works...without the chalk.

InvertChaos What tire size are we dealing with? You'll most likely want to be running less than Max that's for sure!

tire pressure

Is it better to have the max psi in my tires or less
