    35x12.5x15 MTR on 15x7" factory rallies. What would be a good tire pressure to keep the bouncing down and get even tread wear this winter till I buy my MT rims in the spring?

    Between 25-30psi depending on your weight. I have run my 37-1250-15's on 15x8's at 25psi on the street/highway for about two years now with no problems (it is a DD).

    If you keep them rotated and balanced, they'll last a long time.

    The more aggressive the tire, the more often it must be rotated.

    Directional tires are especially bad.
