Try about 34 all round running light, see how it goes, and up the rear
pressure to about 38 if carrying weight or transferring weight from the
that worked OK in similar sized tyres on my 110. Mine were 31x10.5R15, which
if you work it out is about the same width.
running the fronts softer will give you a softer ride, but tends to make
them wear unevenly, IME.
