I've been getting about 13.5 mpg HIGHWAY lately....

I checked my tire pressure on the new tires/rims I got from 4wheelcustoms.com.... (I didn't think to do that when I got them a couple weeks ago.. DUH).... pressure was between 30-35psi...

I increased pressure to 50psi per ratings on sidewall....

Went up to 15.1 mpg freeway :)

Be careful you will start getting major wear on the center treads at that psi.

Yeah C_G, your rounding out the running surface causing the center to wear faster.

Suuuuuure you were thinking that.... :rolleyes: We all know you were about to run out and try it on your own truck!!!! :D



I am no expert but I sure wouldnt recommend having those tires at any higher psi than what the sticker inside your driver's door says they are supposed to be at! (EDIT: that is only if you have factory spec tires, just for clarification)

Ok, so how am I supposed to know what to set the air pressure at? And if I inflate them to the 50psi that's on the sidewall and they wear out faster than the 50k mile warranty, they should get replaced by Pro Comp, right?

run between 40 and 45 on those

the number on the sidewall is only at cold temperatures and the max, only used while towing heavy loads, which flattens out the tires at max pressure for even wear

I didn't think the ride was bad at all..

And as far as the recommended pressures based on the sticker in the door jamb.. I'm no longer running the stock rim/tire combo (the ugly 20's and silly tires that came on them).. so I don't know if the recommendation would be the same.. ?

Should I check with the guy at 4wheelcustoms who sold them to me?

Thanks
