On or offroad?

I ran my old michelins at 35psi onroad and 8-10 psi offroad

I run my claws at 24 on road and 3-6 off road, but they are bias plies

Cheap, Capable, Reliable.......

I had my 31 BFG ATs at 31 psi. I found that on my XJ anything over that would cause a pretty harse ride and anything under would cause a loose ride. I did notice at 31psi I had pretty crappy traction in rain, but then again I have a heavy foot.

I run my BFG 32 muds at 31 also. You really have to find a happy medium for yourself. 28-32 is a pretty good range. 32 being pretty rough and 28 being soft.

Perfect! I am mostly onroad so far, I had them at 50, then 40, and wondered why I was bouncing all over the road! Thanks for the info, I was ready to take them back.

Yeah thats extremely high. Higher pressures are normally used when you have a heavy load or tiny tires, like low-pros or something.
