Tyres Pressure

Post by charger » Fri Jun 08, 2012 2:04 pm

What is the ideal pressure for mud tyres on the road & what can I lower them to for off road. The tyres does not state any figures, they are broncos if that makes any difference.

Service Manual states 20psi front and rear but 26psi in the rear if carrying weight.

That's what I run mine at. I'm too lazy to change it when off road.

I usually run mine at 20 psi off road depending on the terrain

If its REALLY boggy and wet I've had them down as low as 10 psi

Mine are at 20 psi front because of heavy winch bumper and winch with
steel cable at the moment.

Rear are at 15 psi at the moment but as the kja is so light at the back and
the tyres are fat, this is still a bit much at the moment. wheel spin on roundabouts
etc.

Offroad around 10 psi works for me. :salute:
I Know how to work it. Not, how it works...............
believe me, there is a difference!!!

I've been reading around the internet and 20 psi to 33 psi (2.2 bar) seem to be the pressures recommended.For normal road use does anyone have the definitive figure?

There isn't one because everyone is running different types and sizes of tryes to standard.

Mostly road use I go for 22psi... 30+ psi is WAY too hard

30+ is way too hard, standard Sj tyres should be at 20psi and up to 26 in the rear of carrying weight, larger tyres generally have stronger sidewalks so the pressures can be reduced.
