Just fitted BFG 285/75/R16 to the Patol (3.4Tonne) can anyone give me tyre pressurse that they run and are happy with on the last set "275/70/R16" i run 40 front and 45 rear on normanl black top runs and found that they were within the 4psi rule the dealer suggested that i could now go up to 50psi with the 285's just wanted to check with other people before testing. And by the way just had the Patrol service and yes it was before the tures but they just had to rotate and balance the old tyres even when i told them not because each time they do it i have to take the Patrol down the road to and tyre palce that has an on car balance because that's the only way to get them right, they never learn do they.

My Explorer is 2 tonne with BFGs 255/70/16s and was told that 40psi was OK, on a recent trip to the Brindabella's droped them to 36psi seemed to be better and not as harsh.

I have a set of 26570R16 BFG ATs for my Patrol approx the same weight. I run 36 on the black stuff and drop to 28 on the corrugated dirt. On some of the more rough tracks I drop to 25. Wear is even and have yet to suffer a puncture - they've done 65000kms. Just fitted a set of Yokahama GO11s to my spare set of wheels and have yet to work out the pressures I will run in these.

I have these on my GU coil cab 4.2 I run 40psi rear and 36psi front on the black top and drop all by 5 psi as I hit the dirt ,I find that 18psi in the sand has worked well and so far have not been boged

I run 265/75/16 on the Patrol. Daily running I usually have 32/36. Load for a trip start at 34/38 then check the pressure at the end of the day for the 4psi rule then adjust when cold. Had it serviced last year before a trip and did not bother to do a pressure check, car squirmed all over the road. Hot pressures were 39/46. Soon adjusted then down and make sure I check them now

I run 285/75/R16 on my 80 series. Generally aiming at 36 for black top running & drop to 30 or under for dirt/rough touring. Mine is not carrying too much weight so works well at the slightly lower range.
Nice truck you got there mate..

Try a little more in the front and a little less in the back unless you are loaded up heaps. I run 44 in the front and 40 rear without too much weight in there, (only long range tank and _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx)
