    Curious as to what you guys are running tire pressure wise with the plows on the truck. I have 50psi in my BFG M/T's right now. Should I raise or lower it before plowing?

    What load range ar your tires and size?

    I run My 285/75/16 BFG's AT/KO load D at 60 to 65psi when I'm plowing.

    I put in about an extra 10 psi over normal.

    Just reading on Cumminsforum, I have found that 65 psi in the front & 50 in the rear results in the best wear & mileage. When I am fully loaded up though, I take em up to max psi.
