:huh: Is anyone running different air pressures in front vs in rear?
I have the Ram 20" wheels and 275 60 R20 tires Running 42psi . To me the
rear tires look more inflated compared to the fronts. which would make sense cause the D is heavier in the front. So Im thinking I'll go down
a few pounds in the rear. Any suggestions???

42 psi is WAY high according to manufacturer recomendations. Look at the inside of the drivers door for proper inflation specs.

I dont think the specs on the door count anymore since it has a non-stock tire/wheel setup. I would start at about 35psi and see how it does.

To determine the proper inflation, you can take a pice of chalk and draw a line across the tread. Drive down the street and inspect the tires. If the chalk line wears in the center first you are over inflated. If the chalk line wears on the edges, you are underinflated. Even wear means proper inflation.

you can also use a line of paint across the tread. Takes longer to see results, but may be better if roads are wet.
