Optimum TIre Pressue 265/ 60 /18 LTX MS2

I'm still trying to find the cold PSI that will give the best balance between ride and responsive handling. 35-36 cold rides pretty good, but 38 cold gives more response at highway speeds. The tires have only been on for a few hundred miles, I wonder if things will change as they wear in a bit. suggestions appreciated.

Been running the LTX/MS and MS2 for a couple decades at 37-38.
I personally prefer 37-38 cold, but someone here noted they preferred 38 front and 36 rear... and I'll agree with them after trying it--at least with the slightly front-heavy V8.

The MS/2 has one of the longer tread lives of any tire, so I wouldn't expect a tad over the "comfort-oriented" range on the door sticker to have any bad effect.

As for YOUR preferences, whatever feels good to your bohurkus.

Been running mine at 35 cold, they go to about 38 at highway temps, for 2 years now, and like it like that.
