Tire pressure

    Just wondering what other RAM 2500 / 3500 owners run for tire pressure during plowing season.

    I was thinking about this last night because I haul a 6K camper with weight distribution hitch. I run the standard 60 psi front, 80 psi rear but you would think since the weight is distributed I'd be better off running 80 psi all around. I would also think during plow season 80 all around would be best.

    with the weight distribution hitch run 60-80 as the hitch is just distributing the wight, ie putting some weight back onto the front.

    when plowing i add an additional 10-15psi to the front.

    I run mine at max pressure all the time. My front end feels sloppy if I don't.

    Thanks guys, makes sense to me. I'm sure the ride will improve o_O Actually, may work to my advantage. The wife may complain even more about the ride and I can justify new Bilsteins all around Thumbs Up
