255 85r16 tire pressure- what are you guys running?

Installed a couple weeks ago on wolf rims. Stock pressure seems too squishy onroad. Anyone trying higher?
Thanks.

Kind of depends on the tire. Somewhere on here rover yota/ Pendy outlines chalking tires and determining the correct tire pressure for your truck/tire combo, for best mileage and tire wear.

with an 85 aspect sidewall I wouldn't run less than 40.

I have 255/85/16 BFG KM2 muds on 16x6.5 wheels and run mine at 55psi, My rover weighs in at 6200lbs. I just got back from a 14k mile long road trip and my tires are wearing very even.

They do seem very round at 50.

I'll try to find it. Thanks. Didn't know you could do such magic tricks.
