Where did you guys get your KO2s from anyways, Costco won't let me install them on my 4Runner because of the load index rating. Had KO2s on my 2015 Tacoma and they were awesome! Thank you

Well my thought is that tire manufacturers are the experts at what they do. So in this case Iíll go by their recommendation. I assume when auto companies decide what is the best tire pressure for the car that they consult with tire manufacturers first and then they may tweak it for what they think is the optimal ride.

Yes I really enjoy this forum. Iím always learning something new. The other thing I like is when there is a difference of opinion the debates are civil and respectful.

The tires are pretty common and you should be able to get them just about anywhere. I got mines from Bruce Tires but I think Americaís Tires had the cheapest price. I think Costco is a rare exception where they will sell you the tire but wonít mount them for you. Maybe they worry too much about liability.

Yes, technically. The tire would be under required PSI and may ride soft and potentially be unstable, overheat and blow.

That said it depends on the over all weight and your use. So many times its just fine at 32 PSI.

I did read that many people here prefer to run them at 40 PSI.

Yes to all of your questions for normal driving. Airing down off road at slower speeds is of course an exception. I ran my KO2's at 32 for a while and they began to cup, that is when I looked into it and discovered I needed to adjust for the LT tire. After that, they went 90k no kidding. Now on my second set on the runner and may put some on my Land Cruiser unless I decide to go with Defenders.

Additionally, if you have heavy accessories like bumpers, skids, RTT, etc. then you may want to research and recalculate your weight and re-run the math on the inflation tables listed above for maximum performance. Hope this helps.

I usually go with what the manufacturer says too. The installer is a different story though.

At 40psi now, going to give 44 a try for the hell of it. I realize everyone has done this already and this horse has been beat to death over the past 10 years, but I guess I'll see for myself and add to the validations!
Thanks for posting this. Falken Wildpeak A/T3Ws, here's the excerpt from their chart attached. Sounds like 44PSI (43.58 to be pedantic ) would match the Dunlops. Local dealer set them at 38, which has been ok but maybe it's time to pump them up a bit.

Cool. For the load rating I believe you round up. The ride is a bit harsher for sure due to the higher pressure but the wear and stability has been better. Really wish they made a P rated KO2 to run in the 32 range. I guess that's the compromise you make going to LT.

I called BFG support number yesterday and asked about this. Iím running 275/70-17 K02ís on my 2022 TRD ORP.

BFG guy used their data on vehicle (year/model/trim) and their chart on load index for my specific tire. He said I should be running 45 psi cold, but to pump it up more if towing.

I asked about stock 265 size on same vehicle and his calculations show 50 psi for that.

I was surprised, but his explanation did make sense, as it showed load capacity vs pressure in his chart.

Thats gotta be the E rated right? The C in 265 seems good around 40, 45 is to high and it rides poorly.

SCFW. How are you calculating the precise tire pressure? It seems you’re using some formula and not just a chart. I found this formula from a you tube channel.


So this says
Actual axle tire weight load / Max tire load x Max tire PSI = Recommended PSI

So if the 4Runner GVW is 4,400 lbs (TRD Pro) that give a per axle weight of 2,200 lb
(If anyone know the actual front and rear axle load please let me know)

KO2 265/70R17 C Load
KO2 max weight load is 2,470 lbs

KO2 max PSI is 50

2200 / 2470 x 50 = 44.53 PSI

Is this correct?

Thanks

I actually didnít ask on load range for the 265.

My 275ís are ďEĒ

Iím not thrilled with the ride of my 275ís @ 45 psi either. They came on my 4Runner as I purchased used with 637 miles. If I were doing this Iíd stick with 265ís as they are 11 lbs per tire lighter.

Fwiw, the recommended cold pressure for a Rubicon on stock KO2 285 C loads is 37psi.

You can also chalk test your tires for proper psi.

Very true, I was doing that back in the early 80s and itís a great way to determine if youíre going to get uneven wear. Unfortunately, it doesnít have anything to do with load index.
