KTJ. its the section width of the tire thats more of a concern than the diameter. Whats the width of the wheel? 7" or 8"? It would be easier to roll the P235/70 off of the 8" than the 7" at the same presure.

Either way I wouldnt go lower than 20 lbs. 16 would probably be okay as long as your not in a high traction situation or rock crawling type stuff were knocking the bead in becomes easier to accomplish. For mud or sand 16 would probably be okay.

I think we will play it safe and run around 18~20 psi for him. I'm not sure the on the width of his rim.
