Hey guys....... what PSI should I be running on my 18/225/45 Dunlop tires to gain the best gas mileage and good tire wear ?

I've tried searching but I didn't find much.

Is there a rule of thumb I should be following.

Anyone who can suggest a proper PSI I should be going with ?

Thanks

I run 36 all around on my 18's


If you want the best number for YOUR setup, then what you should do is get a pyrometer (Infrared thermometer) and after a drive, take temperature readings of your tire's tread. On the outside edge, center and inside edge.

Try different pressures and when those 3 readings get close to eachother, you will be at a pressure where you are getting the most even tire wear and traction.
