If you don't haul anything in the truck then I would lower the rear but if you do haul, even light loads, I'd leave it at 55.SV Silverado;1590419; said:Thanks for your imput guys.
I just checked my PSI and they were set at 65F and 80R by Costco. I lowered them down to 55 F&R and ride is much better and less squirrelly. Is 55 still too much in the rear?
Your right about that! I have "been down the road" with these, so to speak and it hasn't been really good to me, but its working out now. The 285's were a big high $$$ nightmare. Luckily I found someone to deal with me on them. I won't make that mistake again. It was fine in the days when I didn't have anything to haul, but thats alot different now and family safety is #1 priority. So yeah, the 265's have been a great compromise and I'm happy with them so far.SV Silverado;1594041; said:DUG 71 - looks like you have tried about every tire combo. 265E's seam to be a good compromise between looks and performance. I also want to get the best wear out of these expensive tires. I just got my truck back from the dealer today after an oil change and I only drove a block before it was obvious that they had inflated the rear to 80psi (no traction and rode like a roller skate)
Because if you run the recommended 80 psi in the rear it will beat the teeth out of your head. I think those were put there for the truck to be doing what is was made for (towing), but your not going to be doing it all the time and besides it will wear the middle of the tires out really quick and you don't get any traction for crap.holtzer1;1594190; said:why not inflate the to the tire placard pressure on the door jamb...thats what its there for, and will give you the pressures recommended by gm, and wht they were set at when you took it off the dealer lot.
I bought my truck with the intension of it being a HD and riding like one. I don't mind it one bit. With plowing and never knowing what I might haul I run 80psi F/R all the time.Duramax88;1596649; said:I go 65 front 80 rear ALL THE TIME.. I never know when i may need to tow something or go plowing.. As far as the ride goes, they are HEAVY DUTY trucks, not Caddy Devilles.
