Default 35/12.50/17 Toyo m/t tire pressure?

So I just wanted to know what everyone runs there Toyo open country m/t's at for everyday street driving?.. I checked mine today and they were at around 34-35 PSI and thought maybe it was a little too low. The tires say cold inflation 65 PSI, but looking online I have never seen anyone running at that pressure.

Yes, 34-35 PSI is [way] too low, IMHO, for these tires.

For what it's worth, below is how I run mine after having them on another vehicle and experimenting over many months at different pressures.

My concerns were driver/passenger comfort, optimal braking/handling, tire longevity and even wear, rolling resistance and just overall quality. It works for me -

In the warmer seasons [May-Sept] I run mine at 42-44 PSI

In the colder seasons [Oct-April] I run them at 48-50 PSI

THIS read may interest you and others.

Good thread.

Good thread.

Grub is there anything you don't have answers for?
Thanks a lot, yeah I knew they were to low today and did not have access to a compressor and no change to pay for air at the gas station.

I want to always have the safest ride and get the most out of my tires, and would beat myself if I ruined these tires with running on low psi.

Pretty much everything you have said on this forum included reviews has been very useful and helpful, so tomorrow I will filling them up to 44PSI..As the temperature has been jumping between 64F-78F.
I would give you Rep points if I could, Thanks again.

You're welcome.

As for the coins for air at the gas station, I can't get my thick melon around that one. The gas stations around me [still] don't charge but I have seen many out of my area who charge a couple of quarters for a couple of minutes of air....

Absurd!

Report back and let us know how and/or what improvements you see with increased PSI on those tires. I think you'll be happy.

Cheers.

Ya it is totally a ripp off to charge for air. My friend 2 houses down has a massive compressor built into his house, but ther driveway is being sealed so no access. I guess I will cough up the quarters tonight as my truck is parked at home for the day.

I was running about 40-42 in my Toyo MT's through the spring/summer. Worked well for me, didn't have any irregular wear or other problems.

Alright update-- been running the tires at 47psi as we have been going through a random cold spell.. And I have noticed an increase in fuel miliage.. I also have cut my driving way down going from 2 hours of hwy commuting for work down to a 10-15 min drive to my college each way.. I have been able to notice a better ride quality though.

I just got the Toyo's on mine and have been running at 35 psi. After reading this thread, I'm gonna increase the pressure a bit tomorrow. Great info here, thanks

If you can weigh each of your axles on a scale, Toyo has a chart on their website that will tell you exactly what to run each of your front and rear tires at. In my 2004 Chevy, while towing a 5500lb trailer with Open Country AT's I had the tires inflated to 55 all around. Theoretically using their chart you will get the best tire wear depending on how much weight you are carrying.
