    What pressure are you guys running with 235/85/16s ? With the plow, and without ? I just had these tires put on and the guy put in 55-60 psi. He said putting in max, (80) is only if you actually carry the max amount of weight, which is around 3000lbs. ?

    I run mine at no less than 76 and no more than 80. I think right now they are at 78 both rear and front. You're more likely to get a flat tire if you don't have enough air. I've been told numerous times to keep these tires aired up and not low. I don't like to see bulging at the side wall, so I keep my tires aired up. Also, less rolling resistance. The ride in my truck is not nice so I don't worry about it anyway. Nick.
