Bigstonz 30 psi in the rear and 32 in the front for 33x10.5 seems to drive well and show even tread wear.

mikes139 When I was running 33's I went around with about 20 to 25 psi in mine.

jpdocdave 40psi!!! who's they?

JFT80 It's amazing the difference in the ride once I got the PSI down to about 28. I no longer bounce like a basketball on the highway when I hit a bump. They had it up to 40+ PSI.

njkeagle Isn't there also a way by calculating? Meaning you take the max load per tire and divideded by the weight of the vehicle? I know I figured this out before but not sure..Heeeeelp

x2 if the center is worn prematurely the pressure is too hi.

too many people see the side of the tire say max 44 psi, or whatever, and do that. wrong. tires fit many vehicles, you gotta go by what your application calls for.

MouthfulOfGrass I run my 33's at 28 - 30 psi for street.

Sb5551 The best method is to use the chalk trick. Rub a trip across your tire and drive around the block a couple times. If the center is worn, lower your tire psi. If the sides are worn raise it, and if its completely gone your good.

I believe the proper pressure for 33's is around 25 depending on your jeeps weight and such.

Proper Tire PSI

Does anyone know the proper tire PSI on 33"x12.5"x15" Mickey Thompson tires? They seem to be more worn in the center.
