    TSL-r\'s street and PSI

    For all you TSL-R runners, what PSI do you run them on the pavement?
    I just had mine put on and while I know the side walls are a lot harder than regular M/T's they seems like they have a real hard impact on bumps that use to not be as noticable. I was wondering what the differnt PSI's you all run.

    Thanks.

    I have 36' ers and run 30 psi, i've run 26 psi in them but they were a bit to squishy, i realy can't tell, however, if they ware differently at those pressures, the detroit and my screwed up toe-in due to a rock caressing my tie rod kinda have an affect on that, but 30 psi is great for me, and my truck sees the freeway everyday.

    I run mine at 30. When I got them they had about 55[​IMG] in them. I drove it down the road one time and let a BUNCH of air out. Much better now.

    Not to sure but from what most beople said about SuperSwampers in general is 25-30psi gives the best most even wear on a swamper. So I picked 28 and left it there....we shall see
