Tire Pressure with 35's

What tire pressure should I be running with 35" KM2's on stock 18's? Costco set them at like 32 psi when I checked with the accugauge, I thought it should be more like 40psi??

What do you guys think would get the best treadwear and mileage?

Thanks!

Run them at 38 to 40. All the 35" tires they have listed on the BFG KM2 site are a load range D tire with a max of 50. 32 is way too low for that tire. I would never go lower the 35-36 on that tire.

If they're a mud terrain, which I believe they are, then I'd run them at 42-44PSI.

I ran my Toyo MT's in the low-mid 30PSI range for a very brief while until I was advised on these boards to run them at 42-44PSI and the ride difference, instantly, was very noticeable.

I'm now running them at about 45PSI.
