Default Re: Is 32 psi the correct tire pressure for 19"?

245/35/19 and 285/30/19. Running about 35 all around with no issues. I was tempted to go higher when I read beginning of this thread but after hearing about uneven wear, etc, I will stay the way I am. No issues, no uneven wear, just a wish for better gas mileage but my foot may have more control over that than an extra PSI or 5.

I saw this thread last night and almost **** my pants, I've been running 41/48 for a little over 3 weeks now. I knew that those numbers seemed high, but I figured why would they put anything other than the recommended pressures in the door jam.

I will be dropping my pressures down to 33/35. I hope my tread isn't FUBAR'ed.

You should be fine. 3 weeks won't do much damage unless you were doing donuts. I'm still around 35 psi on my second set of tires and it's wearing down evenly.

33/35 or 35 all around. From my experience with my last set of tires which was running 38 all around was having wear result from over-inflation. Now I'm just running 33/35 and so far wear on tire has been even. I never have more than 4 people in my car so there is never a need for higher psi pressure.

I do 36 all around. Too bad there is no right answer to this question, it would make things easier. If you think about it, the tire pressure you inflate it too only stays the same for a week or so, over time you lose cold tire pressure. So just a thought, I fill my tires with air when it gets down to 32psi, about a month or 2, so technically I've run anywhere from 32-36 psi due to normal tire pressure loss. Just a thought.
