    What air pressures are you running both on and off road,for most life out of tires, off road mainly mud and some trails no rock climbing?

    i am running 39.5's . Greg72 runs around 18# with 38.5's

    if you go too high of a pressure with the TSL's the centers will wear out faster than normal.

    If i had a brand-new set, i would sipe them much like the ORD Jimmy, since it lets the lugs roll "flatter" on the road and wear a bit better.
