Tire Pressure opinions, advice...

Just wondering what others are running for tire pressures.

I replaced a set of Firestone Desination All Terrains 285/ 75 16 Load range D for a brand new set of B.F. Goodrich All Terrain K/O's of the same size load range E.

The Firestones wore in the middle more because I had the pressure up too much, 60psi on all 4.

I am running 60 in the front and 55 in the rear with the BFG's because of the load range E and 80psi max rating.
What do you all think?

Also when I tow my 1800lb trailer and 4500lb rock crawler what do you all think I should go to? Thanks in advance.

I run set up to run 70 psi front and 60-65 psi in the rear on a DRW F-350. It makes a difference in mileage, and I haven't had any issues. I'm running BFG Rugged Trails 245/75R17E.

I run what the door sticker calls for, i think on a 350 SRW its 55 front and 70 rear. have tried many diffent combinations over the years and find that what the door sticker says generally works best for milage, comfort and tire wear.
On my excursion i run 55 all the way around because have oversize rims so took the tires to the max. seems to be good so far.

IF you're running the factory size and rated tire. Change size and or load range and that changes.
