i tried 50 in the front and it feels pretty sluggish/sloppy. -with all the motor on top of it, i can see why.

-the suggested pressure difference between the front and rear just seems to much. 80 in the rear for hauling heavy i'm sure but....jeeze.

mid 60ish all around seems reasonable i guess...

thanks!

Might also depend on what your tires are rated for. I think the sticker on the fuel door says 70 or so on mine, but the max PSI on the tires is like 65 so I run 65 all the way around. When I bought the toyos, I asked the dealer to make them what ever thier max presure was and he said they would only do what the manufacturer called for. Well they only put in 32psi.
