Why is it that you guys are running more pressure in the rears, when there is more weight over the front?

I run about 40 front, 36 rear.

I run higher in the rear ...as I carry load and tow a lot ... but that's the only reason why i do.

But if you aren't carrying heavy load all of the time ... it is better to have a bit more in the front ... make braking and steering more effective to a better contact patch on the road.

I wouldn't carry more than 40psi though.

And nowhere near 55psi ... on a highway ... that's asking for a blowout.
