What are all of you with 265/75 16s running for tire pressure?. I'm running these tires on a 2003 Chevrolet K2500HD Duramax, crew cab, short box (just bought the tires today).

Michelin LTX M/S 265x75 Load E @80psi. I don't tow anything.......yet, but when I bought the truck from the dealer they already had the tires up at 80 (I am guessing they put them on because the tires were brand new). I think that I may need to air them down a little :D .

55 in front and 50 in back seems to be a good range on my Nitto 265/75. but if you haul any real wieght you gotta air 'em up

I run 65psi on BFGs All terrains all 4. If your not close to the max psi your not getting your best gas mileage.

60psi all around in Revos. I dont tow alot anymore, but I figure I will get a little better mileage with them up.

I have Michelins on mine, and I am running 50 up front and 40 in the rear. There is no weight back there, so there absolutely no reason to have a lot of air in there. All you are doing is making the contact patch smaller and causing the tires to wear faster.
If I pull my flatbead 20ft gooseneck, I bump them to 60 psi and that handles all the weight I put on it.
