    What have you settled with for air pressure? My owner's manual says 11lbs, which did well for my bighorn 2.0 tires. I am starting with 12lbs and will experiment from there.
    On another note, I am sad to see these tires listed as 27's ended up being slightly smaller diameter than the 26" bighorns when mounted on my factory wheels.

    It really depends on your terrain and use. I run 18 PSI because I do 50% highway driving. If I rarely drove on the road I'd probably lower pressure to 14 PSI.

    I've been running 12psi in mine. I like lower for additional grip, but worry about pinch flats like I experienced with my old Zilla's so 12 psi was a good settling point without being too stiff. My 27's measured true to size and towered over the 26" Zilla's side by side.

    Most of your dot approved radials tend to run small. I did lots of research before buying my 28's. I found info. on many brands and tire models which seemed to support this. Really bummed me out back then. Even wheel companies aren't running their offsets true to size either. Whats going on here????

    Thank you. Currently running 14 and will try 12 next time we're running the technical stuff. I am bummed that these came in at 26" and I lost about a 1/4" frame to floor clearance over the 26" bighorns.

    I just bought some 28x10r14 Terrabites for my 2016 Wolverine last week. I was worried as they were only 26" un-mounted but once mounted on the rims with 15 psi all around they measure at 28" tall

    Took them out this weekend and ran some technical and steep routes. Very impressed with those tires.
