Default Tire Pressure

I have recently realized that i have no idea what my day to day road driving tire pressure should be. Anyone know (specs in signature)?

If you've got stock size tires you can use the pressures listed on the driver door jamb sticker.

The tire notes the maximum pressure permitted. The recommended pressure is the one listed on the driver's side door jamb. It's 30 psi on my 2010 FX4. It's 35 psi on my 1996 Mazda B3000 4x2.

Default Re: Tire Pressure

The tire gives max and min these are values based on the tires capacity and has nothing to do with the specific vehicle you are running them on and the door/manual tells you what to use when running the stock tire size, im trying to figure out whats right for my 33" bfg's. the tire and door/manual values really have nothing to do with it at least according to basic physics. so according to personal experience from people in this forum some of whom i suspect are running bfg's what pressure results in the best tread wear/tire life?
