I don't like mine at 36 psi cold (which is what is on my door frame sticker) and prefer the 38 cold I previously mentioned. They run at about 41psi "hot"...which at highway speeds works for me. I get good fuel economy, too.
Jim, I'm with you on that. I too try to keep all 4 at 38 (36 - 40). Check on them every time I 1st start it up and again when I pull in the garage when done for the day ! I don't air up or down though till the next day IF needed, and I don't until the readings are "updated," which takes a few miles of driving. ps; of course how hot or cold the air temps. are must be taken into account !

Door sticker said 33 on my rig so I upped it to 37. I was actually driving them on 33 since I exchanged the tpms in them and truth be told, the tires did feel a little splashy. Filled them up and I did notice a difference.

Good tips all around.
