chalking your tires for better wear and performance - YouTube

jokerchief462 Run the recommended pressure and then if you don't like the ride adjust down or up a couple pounds at a time until you find what works for you. It took a couple weeks and mine likes 29 psi all around.

petercass88 that sounds really over inflated for a 31" tire... no?
06-07-2013 08:10 PM
Iheskitt I do 40-45 psi on 31s for max fuel economy. Mine is on the road 100% of the time so I can't speak for trail psi

I kinda remember this suggestion. But I thought you need to have the tires at normal operating temperature and driving more than a few feet.

Please let me know what PSI you discover to be the best for the 33" BFG ATs, we have the same tires

Mbclark Lots of good advice here....I did the chalk test and found 24 to be the magic number for my 35's

Scott-CJ8 I would run 30-35 psi on the street, about 15 psi on the trail, and go down to about 5 psi on the rocks. But that's my preference, you may like something different on the trail... it depends on the terrain mostly.

jeeps4u2nv88 I'm running 32" BFG Mud Terrain T/A's
06-06-2013 08:31 PM
petercass88 not to thread jack... but i have the same question! I have 33" BFG all terrains. Right now i have them aired up to 31 PSI for road use. Also what do you air them down to for off road use for mud/rocks etc.?
06-06-2013 08:26 PM
SuperMidget depends on the tire type not just the size, what brand/style tire are you running?
06-06-2013 12:35 PM
Xpress I'd suggest around 30psi.

Tire pressure suggestions

I have a 1988 YJ that has 32" tires on 15" rims. The Jeep is lifted 2" with a body lift and 3" of suspension lift. Any suggestions on what pressure to run the tires at? The jeep is driven 90% of the time on the street. I want the tires to last as long as possible but want the Jeep to run as smooth as possible as well.

Thanks!
