I ran 29 all around when I had 33" tires. Actually I still run it with 35" tires. Just take chalk and run a couple of stripes across the tread, and see how the wear is.

Why do you run more pressure in the rear tires? Easier to do smoke shows? :*******

I run 35x12.5 r15 on a 15x10 rim... Street driving I run about 32psi. My center has worn a little faster but thats fine, because when I air them down to 10 to 18 psi the outer lugs make contact more and they aren't as worn.

I run my 36 x 12.5 sx's on 8 inch rims around 25 on the street. My truck is pretty light too with a very bobbed flat deck. I've noticed pretty even wear even the spool is not too bad on them at that pressure.
