whoa nelly big dagum' tires.

BFG is very good brand.

1) check the valve stems for leaks and tightness of the shraeder valve inside as well. many are loose and leak when they seat the beads on the rim on installation.

2) your aluminum rims may be porous, but doubt it.

3) all tires lose around 1-2 psi per month, normal. i check mine about every 2 months or so or when mpg takes a dump, and before any highway trip with the family.

4) as for tires, anything from 31" and bigger will fit, but 6" lift makes any tire look small.

33's will fit. Do you have all terrains or Mud terrains. The new mud terrains are very nice (I run them and I am very pleased with on and off road performance). You really need to decide what is more important, on or off road performance and then pick a 32 or 33 that fits your needs.

If you cut your fenders, you could fit 35s, but I doubt your gears and axles would be up to it.

I would just get some 33s.
