If you think your ride is better, it can even be much better. You are running your fronts at 105 psi, but if you have the XZE2 tires, that pressure is good for 11,960 lbs, which I am sure your not carrying that. See the attached tire chart....

I suggest that you get a good idea of your actual axle weights and adjust the tire pressures to the chart for you particular tires with measuring when the tires are cool (in the morning before sun on them).

You might be able to get your front pressure down to 95-100 and rear to 95 psi. You will get the best ride, best safety and tire mileage if you match the pressure to the weigh. The pressure will change with the season temperature,

Hank,
They put XZA3+ tires on. I have the tire chart bookmarked so when I get a chance to reweigh I will make adjustments. The cold tire psi sticker above the driver's seat says 105/90, so I set it there.

(I had to take it to Freightliner because of a a/c fan issue.)
