any suggestions on tire pressure?

Hi people. Took me three months to find a used set of tires locally, I have a set of 36x12.50x16.5 Humvees on the wall it's says to inflate to 30lbs.
Is that ok? what do you think? Thank you all.

Depends on the rating if at 30psi they can carry the weight then your ok..IMO I'd NEVER use a 16.5 rim

Why is that? The hummer tires are cheap and aggressive and need that 16.5". I have heard that they dont hold a bead as well when aired down. Is that why you dont suggest using them?

That only applies to new tires though. I start at the recommended pressure and use a tread depth gauge measuring the middle and both sides to see how they are wearing and adjust accordingly

Recommended PSI on up-armored hummers is in the 55-65 range.

Thats probably because of the 12 bolt wheels instead of the old 8 bolt wheels. They allow for a higher psi and therefore more load needed with the armor. The 8 bolt wheels only hold 30 psi.

Im looking at getting a set of 12 bolt beadlock wheels with custom centers for less backspacing made and running grooved Hummer tires

Thank you guys. So far they are holding air and the ride is a lil bit rough than my old bf set. For sure they will grab on any terrain think they are good tires for the money I spent.
