Tire air pressure......what should I run with 265/75-16 tires?

Didn't know these trucks run so much air in the tires! What psi should I be using with these non stock tires? For now, I will not be towing anything and i'm looking for the best ride.

its time for summer air in those tires. let out the winter air asap.


they should be the same. 80 psi for e loads. might be 65 on d loads.

i ran the 265s on my obs and it was fine.

You dont have to run max pressure. 80 psi is max on e rated. I had some large 13.50 wide e rated tires and max was 60. Read the tire. If max is 80 try putting 70 in front and 60 in the rear and see how you like that. The motors are heavy so dont go real low in the front. You dont want to go too low in the rear either. The tire is designed to have a good amount of pressure.
