My stock '97 has 29 psi rear, 26 psi front printed on the inside of the driver's door. I run 30 rear 30 front. 26 just seems a bit low for the front. Should I really be running 26 in the front? :confused:

Play with your pressures until ya get a good footprint and ride for your taste.
I've found that in my 32" load range C tires that 26-27 psi front and 24-25 psi rear is best.

I'm running 32 on mine. I think alot has to do with the tire specs.
I dunno if it really has all that much to do with the tires...really the weight distribution of the vehicle. Maybe the size of the tires, yes.

I'm running 26psi front and 28psi rear with 33s on 15x8 wheels, and the outside edges of the tread still dont touch firmly when doing the chalk, but running them lower makes my milage suck and the lugs start th "feather" on the edges....

Chalk test the tires and find the right PSI for your trucks set up and weight!

...the door sticker is for 15x6 rims with like 235/70R (or some thing) with 31x10.5 on 15 x7 rims my psi is at 28.5 front and 26.5 rear at the daily driven load..and usually goes up to 32/30PSi when I am going on long highway trips and even more when I am hauling a payload especially the rear!

Could we get a explanation of the "chalk test" I am currently trying to get my Nitto AT dialed in,discount tire set them @ 35 but they seemed to have too much bulge @ the contact point!!
Thanks,
Dennis

That is what I run my 31" (245/75/16) Goodyear MT/Rs at. This seems to result in the best footprint. The tires are load range E.

My truck is an '02 regular-cab.
