Being 10 ply I would say you could pick any pressure u want really. More so depends I guess on where/what the terrain is. I have 35" mrt x rox dd an there 8 ply an I run 8 pounds on all 4 corners with no issues but they do have kevlar sidewalls. I also have efx motoravage 8 ply an I run 10 in rear an 8 in front an have had no issues with them either. 8-10 psi range just simply has better traction all around, especially when rock crawling.

We run mostly desert trails. I think I will put fronts at 10 and rears at 12 for todays ride. I have the RCOR tenders and stocks set pretty soft for now. I worked hard all afternoon yesterday to get them mounted for todays ride. I left them at 36 over night and will adjust pressure this morning. Friend is buying the Carnivores which have 250 miles or so on them.

I put 71 miles on the new tires today in the desert. I am happy with them. I notice that they grip the pavement a lot more than the Carnivores, and squawk a lot in corning. Which means I believe that they will really grab when rock crawling.

Handling was fine with 10/12 PSI. Ran on the highway at 55+ MPH for 6 or 7 miles and it was nice and stable. Will play with shock settings next time out.

My KM3's chirp and bark and squeal on any and all paved surfaces and rocks. Yes, they stick like glue on the rocks and are outstanding on snow and ice.
