I have a 2002 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 Z71.
I recently purchased some new tires for my truck. My question is does anyone
know what the recomended tire pressure is on a set of Bridgestone Dueler AT
Revo's LT285/75/16 D rated tires. Max tire pressure on sidewall states
65PSI. I went to Brtidestones web site and all they say is go with what the
vehicle manufacturer recomends on the door. My problem is the stock tires
were 265/75/16 and I went up in size to the 285's. I checked them today and
they are at 44PSI (cold). I believe the sticker on the door of the truck
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Paul, anything between 35psi and 65psi cold will be fine. Use lower
pressures for better traction and smoother ride, higher pressures for better
mileage and heavy hauling/towing. Just make sure all 4 are the
Both Bridgestone and GM have essentially said 35 lbs, (which would have been my
choice too). I'm puzzled as to why you're having a hard time accepting that...
are there people in here you think know more about tires, vehicles, and
handling than GM and Bridgestone? Anyways, larger tires don't change normal
pressure reqirements, they allow greater air volume. The reason for the higher
max pressures are for when you max your load out (you might go to 40-45) plus a
