When driving through tough terrain, especially mud, airing down the tires of the vehicle by about 15 psi can help them cut through any tricky terrain safely and efficiently. Wider tires give the vehicle more traction, allowing the tires to be more flexible, making it easier for you to get out of a rough patch.

What is the 4 psi rule?

Care needs to be taken on how you apply the 4psi rule. The 4psi rules states that “if your tyres are inflated correctly then the tyre pressure measured when the tyres are hot (after travel) will be 4psi greater than the pressure measured when they were cold (before travel)”.

Should I run my truck tires at max PSI?

In most of these cases, 40 psi should be more than enough, and since most modern tire designs will allow up to 44 psi (in some cases more) this is not a problem. If you have a heavily loaded vehicle, up to 44 or even higher is ok if the tire allows it, but this is a little high for most vehicles.
