I recently got a set of (255/75/R17 BFG Mud Terrains) Rubicon take offs for my 2012 Wrangler 2dr Sport (OEM 16" steel's).

I am having trouble finding what the correct tire pressure should be at. Is there some sort of pressure calculator? The sidewall states no more then 50 psi cold. What is a good pressure to run for on-road conditions in my vehicle?


Thanks in advance, Jay

well you can't be running 16in wheels with a tire meant for 17in wheels. So guessing you are now running the 17in Moabs? instead of the 16in steelies that came with your Jeep?

28-33 psi is where you should be at..

Actually the correct PSI is 37, that's what is on the door sticker of a Rubicon.

Perspective...

My car is 35 and 39, my bike is 36 and 42...

Alternatively, the Army saw fit to stencil 36 and 42 on the side of my unit's HMMWVs.

37 doesn't seem like that much to me...

The tire pressure on the tire itself is the maximum pressure (and maximum load) the tire is capable of handling; it is not the recommended tire pressure for your vehicle. That pressure is usually on a sticker near the drivers door sill.

^^ this. I run my 285/70/17s at 38 PSI on road, 18 on rocks or sand

I'd have some real concerns if the folks mounting and balancing my tires didn't know how to read the writing on the sidewall. Just sayin'...

the 35 listed on your door is "normal"....the "cold" listed on your door just means that's what the pressure should be after the tires have sat and cooled down (tires warm up when driving)...it doesn't have to do with outside air temp.
