What sort of vehicle? depends a lot on the weight of the vehicle.

Tony,
Why greater pressure in front tyres?
I think this is incorrect.

David I have same tyres on my 80 series and run 38-40 on rear and 34-36 on front. I do a lot of highway miles with reasonable loads so I may not be the best guide for your situation.

Allyn
I am quoting pressures on my troopy, with a light load as stated above.
Higher pressures on front because the load is higher (engine) weight of load increases more on the rear and if i was crring a heavy load i run 38 - 40 rear on the h way.
This does increase the harshness of the ride but it also increases the safety and the road handling should you get out of shape.
Hope you have/had a good easter
cheers

David I run the same tires and size on my 80 series and run them at 32-34 and 26 -28 offroad. They have a very stong sidewall and the ride is very harsh if run at much more than 34 On a smaller lighter car like yours 32 should be fine provided it steers ok. Cheers RobCairns Offroad Training & Tours

Refer to post 3911
I was talking about the same tyre then and Rob posted a simila reply. I have tried the lower pressures and am satisfied also think they are a little better in the wet.

david,i run mine at 34psiand the ride is pretty good .tried them at 36psi and the ride starts to get a bit harsh.i rotate them every 10000k and they seem to be wearing ok.they have 30000k on them and are just over half worn.my 4wd is similar to yours ,except mine is petrol.
