    Tech Tire Pressure

    I know the TM calls for 70# tire pressure on all (6) 14.00R20 Michelin XZL on a M923A1 5 Ton. The primary driving of this vehicle will be done on asphalt. I have been asking around in the MV community about tire pressure and getting different numbers from different people. So with all that said, what is a good number to run on these tires without a load on the back.

    Thanks in advance

    I run 60-65 on my M929A2. If I were to load heavy, I would go to 80+. I'm running 395's now not 14.00, which are actually higher payload capacity than 14.00. Both rims and tires have a max pressure on them, I believe.... rims being lower than the tires.

    I run 70 psi on the front and 60 psi on the rears of my 14.00x20's. On a M936a1, A2 I would run 90 all around.
