Firestone Tires

Anyone running Firestone Destination AT's 16's

Was wondering about towing tire pressure for these tires.
Says max tire pressure 44 psi.
Anyone run max in rear or should pressure be the same all the way around?

Thanks in advance!

Rhody

Are you talking about tires for your truck? Normally tires with a 44# max PSI rating are passenger tires.

I would run the maxim the rear when towing. If you have a sway problem you may have to upgrade to LT tires.

Is your tire size P265/70/16? That's a passenger tire.

The maximum load capacity displayed on your passenger tires is for use on passenger vehicles, mainly cars. When used on a pick-up truck that value must be de-rated. That is done by dividing the displayed load capacity by 1.1. You also need to do that when lowering the inflation pressures.

The recommended tire inflation pressures were set by the vehicle manufacturer when the tires were fitted to the vehicle. So they were set using the de-rated values for the inflation pressures recommended for the fitment.
