Got my BFG mud terrain KM2s on, but even the tire place wasn't exactly sure what pressure to set them at for the street. What is everyon else running?

I run mine at 32-35 psi for street. Had a lot of fun this winter with my KM 2's. Got them down to 19 psi for that...

James, I run 35 psi in mine on the street. We just got back from a weekend trip to Savannah/Brunswick, GA and they did great, there wasn't a lot of highway noise.

James, Mike called BFG and they told him that there is no "set" pressure as it has to do a lot with vehicle weight. They instructed him to do the chalk test. You chalk the tread across the width of the tire in a 2"-4" wide band then take it ffor a drive.

The goal is for the chalk to wear off even. Wears only in the center, too much pressure, on the edges too little pressure.

That is a great idea, like sidewalk chalk, or ordinary classroom chalk?
