I just put on a set of RWs with BFG AT KOs, size 285/70/17. They are Load Range Es, so max cold PSI is 80. Wondering what others are running these at. Ive got 55 in them now and am going to go drive it a bit and see how they feel.

You can search "Tire Pressure" for posts by me in this forum for all I've posted on the subject, but here is one of my posts that pretty much sums up the rationale for recommending 40psi F/R for LT285/70-17 tires on aa LC200:I was actually pleasantly surprised with the soft ride at 55 PSI compared to the Coopers that were on it. I appreciate the info, but what about the recall that Toyota did for the Tundras that resulted in them recommending 46 PSI for these tires? The 200 is at least as heavy as a Tundra 4x4 CC, isn't it?
Here's a picture of the label that they put on Sequoias and Tundras fitted with RWs and LT285/70/17s as a result of the recall....The sticker for the LC is a different part number because the spare tire size is different, but the Toyota PSI recommendation for the LT285/70/17 tire on a LC200 is the same, 46 PSI all around, confirmed by another Mud member with the sticker.
I'm well aware of that tire pressure recommendation and those stickers which show 46psi (I have one, but there is no sticker available for the Land Cruiser which shows the correct spare tire size). That doesn't change the fact that 46psi is an incorrect recommendation.
I have couple questions:
What kind of accident happened with tundra to promt a recall and was a specific psi involved?
If we take tundra gwr into account with recomended psi should it be 46 or 40 for lc?
