Tyre Pressures for BFGOODRICH

Hiya all,

I have just bought six new tyres BF GOODRICH 235/85 R16 They are All Terrain
T\A. They were not cheap and I think my poor credit card nearly melted.
Anyway the garage have inflated them all to 28 psi.

The vehicle is Defender 110 CSW 2.5TDI, 1991 UK Specification.

I will be carrying a lot of weight at the back and have upgraded to heavy
duty springs and shockers.

What PSI should I inflate the front and back to? Main driving is on tarmac
and ocassionally sand and dirt roads. Sometimes deep sand (I suspect I
will need to deflate the tyres for this).

Happy New Year

Andy

Re: Tyre Pressures for BFGOODRICH

I run these BF GOODRICH 235/85 R16 AT on a Defender 90.

They do look too soft at 28psi! I use 30psi on front and 35psi on rear. If I
am towing then I boost the rears up to 38psi.

This seems to work for me, but Landrover say you must follow the
instructions in the handbook re tyre size and pressure!

No doubt there are insurance implications :(

bunch of w*nkers.

I'd go with 36 front and probably 40 or 42 rear, for road use, depending on
weight carried. Running light, you'd want about 34 all round, I expect.

Note that the book probably tells you 28 for the front. It does that for
the disco. The disco has a reputation for edging front tyres. On mine, the
last set of tyres I ran from new to worn-out on the disco were run at 36
front (235/70R16) and they wore flat and even down to almost minimum legal
tread when I replaced 'em, and they weren't rotated with the rears, either.

The only downside I can see from running higher front pressure is that the
ride is slightly harder. I wish I'd taken pictures of that set of tyres
now... the wear pattern was as near to spot-on as you'd get on front wheels
that steer and drive and brake.

soft sand, you want flotation, so yes, lower pressures and keep the speed
down. Same goes for any soft stuff, really.

moi?

Mind, the minibus goes faster with my new ram-air inlet in place. Made from
a 1.74 funnel, a bit of spare heater ducting and a certain amount of
insulting tape to hold it all together.

Had mine since new ( 110 csw 1997 ) on BF as yours and after searching
around have run mine on 28/ 35 light load and 35/ 40 heavy load ever
since. No uneven wear and lasted about 65k miles

You haven't forgotten to put RAM AIR SYSTEM on the sides in large italic
caps, have you?

After all, there's no point unless everyone knows.

Like those open-topped cars with CABRIOLET written on the sides in foot-high
pink cursive script. Oh really? Thanks for letting me know. I should have
guessed. The black cloth roof ought to have been a clue.
