Just put some new wheels and tires on, off a TJ I think.

30's, but not sure what the best PSI would be for these. Obviously I don't need to go by what the tire says for max(50 psi) but I don't need them for any off roading.

What would be the best PSI size to have running on here?









yes, I am aware of the rust from the mirror.

Lucas Engine oil additives and Transmission additives are pretty much the best on the market???

But for that they work quite well, in a 200,000 mile engine I think it can only really help it to use the oil stabilizer lol.
Good input, makes sense.

drove it around in excitement as its the first time going in public with my lift AND 32s on it. its really a head turner. i love it. people back off, really slow down at yeilds(to them) instead of trying to race me. 1 guy at the gas station asked me what lift it was yada yada. i feel so accomplished!

My goal would be to have the ideal PSI for road/highway. So if 35 is good than I'll adjust to that. How does it make your ride feel? Rough, smooth(or at least as smooth as a 30 can get lol)

anyone else with a comment?

Take a big piece of sidewalk chalk and make a nice solid line across your tire (on the tread) about 1-2" wide, roll the jeep in & out of the garage and check to see if its wearing evenly. If there's only chalk left on the edges it means you have too much air in them (bulges center out) and visa versa for chalk in middle & being too low, you want a nice even pattern

I generally run as high as I can without causing faster center wear. In the case of my 245/70R16 Destination A/Ts, I run 44 front (sidewall max) and 40 - 42 rear, depending on load. They ride pretty rough at that pressure, but it helps a little with gas mileage, and keeps the sidewalls stiffer on the road.

I just read about checking it with the three methods, and the chalk test seemed best. now I just need chalk haha, my son isn't old enough for that just yet, so none laying around

rough isn't an issue, gas mileage would be my goal since the jeep is a daily through the winter. so go for the max that I can?

That's what I always did was run high until I got my mtr's and wore one out in like 1k miles because of it, chalked 'em up and saw it was way high, replaced those tires (another was getting bad too) and have about 10k on them now with what looks like no wear on the tread

just make sure your entire tread stays flat on the ground. Use some chalk to test, and find the sweet spot.
