    Tire PSI Question

    Procomp Xtreme MT is a 35 12.50 15. I am at 24 psi and they are still like 1/2 inch of the tread not making contact with the pavement. Pretty much hasn't changed. Started at 32 psi, and went down in 2 lbs increments.

    Is the side wall going to break in that much or should I keep going down in pressure. I have like maybe 300 miles on them.

    make a line across the tread in chalk. drive back and forth a couple times, and repeat until the chalk line wears evenly. Then you've found the right tire pressure

    You're doing it wrong. Air them up to about 65psi and do a bunch of burnouts and donuts. That will help get the temp up and allow them to be more plyable.

    Supposedly, the "mold release" chemical shit doesn't wear off for about 500... so they will remain pretty stiff until that time. Once that stuff wears off, the tire will form itself naturally.

    That's what Brian told me anyway ::):

    I never knew that Larry. Maybe I will keep them where they are at and chalk test them in another 200 miles or so. You, sir, are one smart guy!

    Hey Dickhead, get out of the fast lane! Unless you're passing of course.

    You're going the wrong direction. Here is the sticker that came on my tires... I find the ride a bit jarring, but you can't argue with the factory recommended PSI.


    I have a big brain too
