I just put the BFG AT's I had on my K1500, before I traded it in, onto my 2500 HD CC/SB D 4x4. I had to trim the valences in the wheel wells some for clearance, mostly on the drivers side. What kind of tire pressures are others running in their BFG AT's ?

50 front, 40 rear unloaded, 50 in rear when towing a 24' enclosed snowmachine trailer.

I run 55 front and 45 in the back when unloaded. I think the ride is a little better when you stagger them when not towing.

What load range are they? That makes a difference. Since they were on a 1/2 tonner, they could be LRC and not LRD or LRE.
I have 265's on mine, and I run 50 in the front and 45 in the rear unloaded. The front axle never really changes that much unless you have a snow plow, so I never change them. I only change the rears when I load it.

Unloaded I run 65 in the front and 35 in the back. It rides much better with the low pressure in the back and steers better with max air in the front. Also with the weight of the dmax and a replacement front bumper the back tires don't bulge as much as the front ones do.

Mine are load range D as the E's weren't out in 285 when I bought them.
I figure as long as I'm not running with a heavy tow I'll be fine. If I have to haul something heavy I'll just put the stock tires/rims back on.

Tire pressure

I used to run 50-40 but I tried 45-35 and the ride is much better and I haven't seen any wear problems.... 285's on stock rims. Nokean Vativa tires.

tire pressure

40-40 rides nice and rotate every 5-6 thousand miles. Wear is even after 10,000 mi.

Well I don't have bfg's but I do have 285's and I run 55 in all 4... Seems to be the nicest ride. No issues with rubbing or anything..

40-42 psi all around unless towing or hauling. Excelent wear pattern at 30k now. See also the post above about not liking the 285 BFGs.

No BFG's. Just got Firestone Destination M/T and dealer told me to run 35 all around to keep the center from wearing out like you see on so many trucks. 285's really DO look nice on these trucks!!
