Toyo PSI

The Toyo Open Country M/T is E rated. However the official website doesn't list the psi. Does anyone know if it is 80 psi? Specifically, I'm looking at the LT295/70R17 128P E/10 (33X11.50R17) tire size.

Re: Toyo PSI

It is 80 according to these guys (via Google... e.g. no affiliation):

Re: Toyo PSI

Thanks! Jeff has been a little slow to get back to me.

I was going to go with the new Nito Trail Grappler. However, it is new and I have seen some poor reports on their full-up mud tire. Everything I have seen on the Toyo has been that it is an excellent all-around tire.

I think I'll go with the sure thing. Thanks again!

Look on the sidewall of the tire; max PSI will be molded somewhere there. (I'm pretty sure)

Re: Toyo PSI

On our SMB we are running the Nitto Terra Grappler, I have no complaints. In the last two months we have put on hundreds of miles in Death Valley N.P.
We have went through Steel Pass from Eureka Dunes to Saline Valley and last Saturday we came down Lippincott into Saline Valley. So far there is no visible damage to the tires.
On the highway I run 70 p.s.i. front and 80 p.s.i. rear, cold pressure. I run a little higher pressure than some others on the forum while four wheeling. 45 p.s.i. front and 55 p.s.i. rear, cold pressure. I have had no spinning on gravel and no problem with the deep sand at Eureka Dunes.

I will be doing a trip report this week on our latest trip to Death Valley N.P.

Yup. Well, except I don't own the tire yet... ;-)

Re: Toyo PSI

Woody, thanks for the info. I've been heavily torn on the A/T vs. M/T decision. I've promised myself that I will spend enough time off-road to justify going with a M/T. I want a tire capable of 80 psi so I don't have to mess with an aftermarket monitor system. SMB can't send you out the door without one that functions and Ford's requires 80 psi. So, that limits tire choices. The good news is that severl tires have become available in b compatible sizes, E rated, and 80 psi over the past year or so.

Re: Toyo PSI

Jessenej,

I have the Ford monitoring system, it's a bit of a pain the first time you set it to your tire pressure after you change a tire or rotate. I like the system, I had no warnings when I aired down this time out, and no warnings when I aired up again.
