Back to tires. Everyone repeat after me.

"If I buy tires with a higher load range than my current tires, I cannot and will not decrease the tire pressure! I need the same air pressure to carry the weight!"

Good choice on the BFG's

Eh, Is that the same as now or with the new, higher air pressures. In other words, stay at 65 with E's or not.

OK T&P:

"If I buy tires with a higher load range than my current tires, I cannot and will not decrease the tire pressure! I need the same air pressure to carry the weight!"

"If I buy tires with a higher load range than my current tires, I cannot and will not decrease the tire pressure! I need the same air pressure to carry the weight!"

"If I buy tires with a higher load range than my current tires, I cannot and will not decrease the tire pressure! I need the same air pressure to carry the weight!"


got it!

Tom- this is a lesson you need to learn...now it's your turn...besides...who would wanna run your tires low on PSI? Bad...bad...

Thanks T&P!

VR,

You have 215/85R16 load range "D" and your sticker on your door says 65? "D" or "E" you should stay at 65 as a rule of thumb.

"D" or "E" at 65 psi both will carry the same weight. "E" can ultimately carry more because you can pump it up to 80 psi. "E" can hold 80 psi, that is the ONLY reason it carries more weight.

Don't worry, tire guys in the business don't always understand this till I show them charts.

Go to this link, the second bold line from the top reads LIght Truck Load/Inflation Tables. Clicl on the middle PDF.

Tom
it is great to see you here!
I am reading this thread a lot because I now know that I have to cross over to the dually zone eventually.
I have resisted it for years, but the weights of 5'rs seem to be headed in one specific direction these days.
And that makes dually knowledge important.

Well i do have what perhaps will be one question in my mind that will show my inexperience with the duals,
if you do want to run BFG's that are a bit wider then stock, can you put some kind of thinspacer between the two hubs? Just wide enough to sport a wider tire, but not too wide to put that much additional stress on the axle?
Whats the line of thinking here?

Mike

Subject change!!

Sean, did you get your new trailer?

Did you win the lottery?

I've been reading the link about Moab. I'm going to have to get me a dirt bike...with electric start, that way when I kill it on a hill I can just push the starter button with the bike in gear... or maybe four wheels, I am getting older.

Just get rims that will support wider tires. I don't like the spacer thing.

Here again, slow fingers.

Mike, There are some that put some spacers between the wheels so they can put the bigger tires on but I figure what the heck. They work just fine and bigger costs more so, I stay with stock.

Tom, When you get older, you get a Jeep so it don't hurt as much. I gave up my 2 wheel stuff when it started riding me more than I was riding it. Figured I needed something more relaxed. Get something and plan on Moab for next spring!

FD,

I will have to talk with one of my expert tire dealers. I haven't heard of anyone using spacers lately. I see no reason why it wouldn't work as long as the studs were long enough. Being in the wholesale business I'll ask a commercial dealer and get back on this.
