Happy and safe trails all,
My left front blew on the interstate and it took part of my fender and harnesses to the HWH system. I did the repair work myself which saved a lot of money.
I monitor my pressures and temps closely, especially temps.
Back to pressures. Since I know I will get pressure increases in the tire up to about 15 psi, I changed my factory tires from 235/75 to 255/70. This give me plenty of safety range for setting my cold pressures without without worry about high road pressures. Tread wear is good so I think I am on the right track. Would still like to see a max pressure under load chart that has been verified by testing.
