check the tyre placard, if the tyre is bigger than std it should run a lower pressure. LC 100 runs 29 - 32 on 275/70/16 so bigger should be lower. get a vernier caliper, check the tyre wear from either side to the middle

cheers jol

Makes not 1 iota difference round town or h/way use,, the correct pressure is a difference of 4psi between cold and hot,,,look up the archives for details.

I run 36-38 around the town, it puts less strain on the steering with all that sharp turning at slow speed or stand still. A good thing to look for is premature featering of the tread or rounding of both shoulders (inner and outer). This generally tells you that the tyre is rolling on to the edges too far as it turns and this can often be alleviated by more pressure. No matter where you are there is no hard and fast rule for pressures. It is governed by the terrain you are driving on and also the habits of the driver ( load,speed, hard cornering etc).
