Really surprising that they're not really rough riding.

Usually with the JKs the higher the load rating the lower the pressure.

This might be a silly question, but why 41lbs if 36 is optimal? I'm running 34 on my 18s (duelers)

Re: My Trailhawk Mods...

Chunderboy - When the new tires and sensors were installed last week they said they put 40psi in them to start. After I drove less than 2 miles the all the sensors were reporting in, but there was a difference of 2-3 lbs on each corner. So the next morning I checked them cold, temp was about 45degs. The PSI range was 36 to 39, brought them all up to 41. Basically just a random decision although I wanted to see what the ride was like. I then drove some freeway and city streets and the TPMS display read 43 on all four corners.

I've tended to run a little higher pressure on M/T tires on the street, particularly on the fronts. This seems to help slow down the cupping on the outside edges.

As for the "Hawk", I'll probably back them off to about 36 and see how they feel.

Werd. I have A/T on my rig so just wondering what u should have.. I was thinking 36. Sound is nominal and the ride isn't splashy or too hard

Re: My Trailhawk Mods...

I just put the 275/65/18s with pro comp 7036 rims and I am experiencing rubbing in the front. I was wondering it is because the pro comp rims are 18x9. I have seen others with these tires and no one has had much of a issue. Am i missing something?

CT...

Just looked at the Pro Comp site for the "pro comp 7036" wheels. They say the 7036's are 18x9 with 5" of back spacing with 0mm of offset.

Stock 18X8 rims (the flat, wide 5 spoke type) like the ones I'm running, have ~6.75" of back spacing, so it looks like your rims do not have enough positive offset.

You didn't say where your tires are rubbing?

They are rubbing in the front when I turn. I can't really make a wide turn without it hitting even with the highest setting. My question is if I put the silent armors on these new rims I should be ok or should I just put back my trailhawk stock rims with the duratracs?
