    What pressure do ya run on yer DD?

    Front tires/rear tires?

    What type vehicle?

    And I suppose the size/type tire would matter!

    33 inch radial Sport Kings . I have run a slow as 25 psi , as high as 35 psi .

    I have found the best balance between ride and handling is 28 psi . Perfect tire wear too , rotate often for the rear locker though so no one tire gets too much wear .

    I wish I had a tire machine , damn tire shop always airs them up too much . like 40 psi , and then I have to pull over and air em down :k5: :k5:

    31" BFG muds on my '91 DD are at recommended 30f 35r.
    My '78 on 33"s has 20 f&r and it's smoothed out the stiffer suspension a bit but does kind of wollow and bounce a bit!
