best psi for off roading. and normal driving for 33s
 
I have 33"s and keep them at 34psi. Idk if its that's the right psi for my wrangler.. and I noticed that I only see wear or the part of the tire that's touching the asphalt is in the middle and not all around.. so I think I might have too much psi since its wearing around the center of the tire.. so what psi you use on your 33's! Off road and normal driving!

I use 25 on my 35's

micah360 01-14-2013 09:18 PM

I run 27psi in my 33" Duratracs.

InvertChaos 01-14-2013 09:22 PM

I run 13psi off road and 29psi on road

Coljag 01-14-2013 09:23 PM

I run 26psi in my 33" Dueler M/T's on the highway and 12psi off road (maybe a little less if really slippery).

408jeeper 01-14-2013 09:25 PM

what would you guys reccomend for 285x75x16 bfg km2's on my tj?

wranglermatt4527 01-14-2013 09:32 PM

I run 28psi onroad and 14psi off road. 33x12.5x15 Falken Rocky Mountain ATS

thedaringmove 01-14-2013 09:42 PM

32 on road and 12 offroad

NewYJOwner 01-14-2013 09:43 PM

33/12.5/15 BFG A/T I run at 21 psi on highway and roads, drop to 12 or so off road.
I have done trail rides, muddy sections and climbed sandy hills at the 21 psi as well.
Different conditions may benefit from different tire pressures.

BLK00TJ 01-14-2013 09:59 PM

26-28 road, 12 offroad. 34 is WAY to high for a 33 and it probably rides like wagon wheels.

NC Bear 01-14-2013 10:57 PM

15 off and 28 on

DevilDogDoc 01-14-2013 11:11 PM

29 on and 15 off. And NewYJ 21 lbs really? I would think it would handle like ass with that low a psi....

It's pointless for everyone to through out a PSI number hey run. Ever Jeep and tire combo is different. The I my way to determine what PSI YOU should run is to do the chalk test.

Your PSI is determined by your tire, the load range, air temp, how heavy your Jeep is, and what surface you're driving on to name a few factors.

on my 33x10.5s I ran 30psi for on road and 10psi front with 8psi rear for Offroad. that was with out beadlocks

34 psi is way excessive for that big of a tire, that is even excessive for the 30" factory size tires which only take 31-32 psi. And generally speaking, the bigger the tire, the lower the air pressure it requires. For 33x12.50 tires holding up a vehicle with the weight of a Wrangler, 26-28 psi is appropriate. Something like 26 psi for around town when lightly loaded, 28 psi when fully loaded on the highway... no higher than that. :)

Actually it handles fine, we have 75 mph freeway speed limits and no issues.

And I run with no trac bars or sway bar.

Before anyone gets too excited about that, note he has a leaf spring YJ which does fine without either of those. :)

x2....

FireMike 01-15-2013 12:32 PM

30 on-road
8 off-road

RedRubicon 01-15-2013 12:38 PM

Different tires require different pressures. My tires are 33x13.50 Toyo MT which is a very stiff tire. I run 20 on the street 10 off-road and 2 in snow and sand. I have never lost a bead at those pressures and have very even wear across the tread. I have 30,000 miles on them with 1/2 tread remaning so these pressures work for me.

I want your air gauge :rofl:

ninjaturtle0 01-15-2013 04:23 PM

I run 25 psi on A/T's for road.
I think the mud terrains can do less??

DBoat 01-15-2013 06:21 PM

I run whatever is in them. Haven't checked them for a few months.
