Did you pull out a measuring tape and go to the top of the tire or did you draw a chalk like or somethign similar and roll across it and divide by pi?

65 psi? Holy shit :anitoof: I run 35 in mine.... ever heard of overinflation? :imo
BTW, those BFG's must run big or something
255/25.5 = 10
10x .85 = 8.5
8.5 x 2 = 17
17 + 16 = 33 :bowtie:

No dude, they are not over inflated at all. They are rated for 75psi for duallys. My truck isnt that heavy so i did the chalk test and 65psi put the tread patch flat on the ground. These arent 35psi 1/2 ton truck tires. :read:

That and per manufacturers specifications :D You can choose to disagree, but the only way your 33's measure 34 is because you have them overinflated :imo

Specs on the 255/85 according to tirerack, I'd guess they're from BFG, since it lists all tires.
According to that chart, you're filling them with the max pressure reccomended :anitoof:

We run 65 psi in the back tires of our 3/4 ton suburban....when its pulling a U-haul full of stuff from Texas to Indiana... 50 for daily driving. At philmont in the 235/85/16 Maxxis Bravo 753 mud tires we ran 45-50 psi, wore nice and smooth as long as people actually used their 4wd. This was on mostly OBS 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks, either crew cab long bed or extended cab long bed, hauling heavy crap offroad all the time...

I'd like to see the wear pattern on kyles tires...
