Regardless if I can overinflate a tire to achieve a desired ride characteristic or if I won't blow them up until 200psi. The braking, handling and safety of the vehicle are significantly altered by improper inflation, not saying door sticker or tires max are right, don't use the tire rated max pressure for daily it's wrong period. The same tires are on many different vehicles so no the same rated pressure might not be perfect for you but over inflating a tire is bad for more than the tire. Think loosing 5 feet of braking distance over a proper inflation press, and significant loss in the wet.
From which orifice doth this drivel come?
Tire pressures are a compromise.
Define "overinflating". Above the door sticker, or above the tire makers recommendation for your vehicle?

Wrong according to whom?
The tire vendor, or someone parroting hearsay?

A traditional pencil gauge with 2 psi accuracy is an oxymoron.

Sounds like it's the rear one...... And it's open wide!

Your DT may be different, but when I tell my Discount Tire shop to fill to a specific pressure, that is what they do, even writing it on the service order. Granted I stay within the tire vendor's recommended cold range--just on the high side.

My DT will do much the same. They'll put whatever you want in your tires. They're your tires.

Re: What Tire Pressures Do You Run?

I checked this morning and the PSIs were at 34 psi so I pumped them up to 37(door sticker says 36) psi. Drove it at 60 mph later on I75 and they were at 40 psi with the OAT at 83F. These are the OEM tires; Goodyear Fortera HLs.
