Re: Tire Question, LT or 6 ply roughness? BFG KO2

For those of you who are running the K02 tires, what is your preferred PSI? I'm 4 days into owning the tires and still trying to find the right pressure. I like 45 due to the lower road noise between 40-55, but it might be a tad bit harsh.

Based upon the BF Goodrich recommended, you should go by the sticker on the door of the vehicle, not by the sidewall.

How To Check Tire Pressure | BFGoodrich Tires

My 18" sticker on the door recommend 33 psi, however I am running 36 psi on Duratracs. If you are running excessive pressure your tires will wear out in the center of the tread instead of running evenly across the tread. I personally think you are running high.
