i have nitto terra grapplers that are 33 inch. the recomended PSI is 65. my rear tires wear tread in the center of the tire so i deflated them down to like 45-50 psi?:cookoo[1]:
what psi do you all run your terras at?

My guess would be that there on stock wheels which are narrow for that width tire. At the higher pressure its balloning the centers out. My old truck had bfgs on stock wheels which i also had to run lower pressure. 50 i believe

They are made to have a certain amount of air in them for a certain load. For example, they say 3000lbs @ 65 PSI, if you don't have 3000 pounds of load on the tire, you don't need 65 PSI. That being said, I don't know what the lowest acceptable pressure is, and I'm sure it changes between tires.

Here are your tire specs from Nitto website

Size Rating Stock # Tread Depth Width Rec. Rim Width Max Load
LT305/70R16 E124Q 200-050 16.5 32.68 12.40 8.0-(9.0)-9.5 3525 @ 65

They are made to handle 3525 Lbs @ 65 PSI. I would try 50 PSI. That's what I run in my 305/55R20 Terra Grapplers and it seems pretty good.

I've heard anywhere from 50-60psi.

I just got mine on Friday and the tire shop put the rears at 70 and the fronts at 60. I'm taking air out of the back to get it down to 50-60 psi.

I run 60 psi all the way around. Any less and they look kind of flat?

Not many, just put them on this spring. Maybe 4000 km or so? They seem to be wearing even so far.

Oh ya, I forgot that I talked to you about the predators. Are you happy with them? Send me a pic, I'd like to see how they look on a red truck.

Put your factory tires next to the new tires and see if you can still tell me that. I have factory 17s and they are tiny compared to the new tires.

No but Nitto has different dimensions listed for P rated and LT in the same size tire. Its not that big of a difference, but a difference none the less.
