To get the most comfort yet maintain reasonable gas mileage and tread wear, what PSI does everyone run in their tires? Im running 33" Pro-Comp M/T but not to sure what PSI I should run for daily use. I know everyone thinks differently and would like some opinions. Thanks.

I almost always run just below the tire manufacturers recommended tire pressure unless I see unevern tire wear. On a 35psi tire I usually run 32psi.

I run my tire (on the truck) through a small puddle and check the tire track. I then adjust the presure until the tire has the complete tread in contact. I have found on the rear of a light truck it can be run as low as 22psi. I have had great luck with even tire wear. I think most people run to much presure in the rear and get the centers to wear out in a hurry not to mention wheel spin around every corner.
