Hey guys,

I have some 32x11.5" BFG MT tires on my TJ. If anyone is running the same tire/size what are you running for air pressure? I have about 28 in there for the road ... I think I'm in the ballpark.

P.s. I didnt end up getting them siped for winter traction, they're actually much better than I was expecting as they came from the factory!

You need to figure out your proper pressure. You want even contact across the contact patch of the tire tread. Try googling for a writeup on the chalk test.

Also, try Chuck's credit card trick.

Thanks for the link, I tried the chalk routine, but it's fairly wet and winterey here right now so the accuracy was a little suspect. The credit card should work well in the garage, I never even thought of that.
