    Hilux pressures started out at I think 45 psi rear 42 psi front. By tholt , May 19, in Hints and Modifications. I use maximum recomended inflation presure on tar and then let them down depending on the off road requirement. Seems to work well for me. As stated previously, running tyres under inflated can cause premature wear to side walls and outer tread face.

    I have a Prado 4x4 with BFG All Terrain Tyres fitted running with 40psi all round and towing the den, kg with 90kg on the tow ball, the tug fully loaded would probably have around kg approx in the back. I run with the 40psi when nothing in or on the back as well.

    I am aware of the lower pressures if on sand etc. I was involved in a discussion today with non GN members but GN's. They reckon I am running with too higher pressure. Live Life On Your Terms. I do run the van tyres at various pressures depending on the load intended and the road anticipated, but the Dmax stays much the same..

    I would think its very much what you're comfortable with, when you can relate it to experience and your comfort zone.. Think you will find the info if you do a search. This has come up a few times on here over the years. This is a chart I use for reference, keeping it with the tyre Gauge. They look really funny when you push them downstairs! My first suggestion would be to check Toyota's recommendations - either in the Owner's Manual or on the vehicle's placard usually inside the driver's door - on the door itself or the door surround.

    As a bit of background, vehicle manufacturers tend to recommend a tyre pressure that will give a "soft and comfortable ride". Tyre manufacturers tend to recommend a tyre pressure that will provide good road-holding and wear. Often the best pressure is somewhere inbetween. My rule of thumb for the past 40 odd years and there are times when I have indeed been odd is to run my tyres at about 4 to 6 PSI above the vehicle manufacturer's recommendation.

    Having then decided the pressure to run - which I usually do at the time I begin ownership of the vehicle - I see how it feels on the road and how it wears.

    I check my tyres usually weekly - but definitely each km or so. If there is no appreciable 'unwanted' wear showing then I assume the pressure is satisfactory. The pic shows the wear well-advanced. Given you can see the "pattern" of wear as it progresses, this is what I look for each km or so.

    If outside edges show wear signs - up the pressure by maybe 2PSI. If the centre is beginning to show signs of wear, lower by 2PSI. However, you have had the Prado for a fair time now - bit late to begin fluffing around with the above. So, check your tyres and see if they are showing any adverse signs of wear. If they look like the middle tyre in the pic - continue to do what you are doing Now - with my Discovery, when not towing I run 34PSI all round which seems to give me the best road-holding and wear.

    Sand and steep serious 4X4 conditions will mean differing pressures. I have found "my" pressures show the best wear pattern. The "4-PSI Rule" above is a bit of a 'rule of thumb' - but it is not too accurate because there are so many variables that can affect its accuracy. For example, cold ambient temp in the morning when you check pressures but the day gets a warmer ambient will, in itself, affect the pressures the tyre builds up to.

    I have gone on too long already, so I will leave it at that as there again so many variables. Bottom line - Check how your tyres are wearing at the moment at the pressures you are running now However, I do think it is wise to have a slightly lower pressure in the front compared to the rear when towing - this helps to restore some of the 'inbuilt understeer' of the vehicle and makes the whole rig more stable, particularly when cornering. Perhaps 34PSI all round when not towing.
