Will say on the side of the tyre the correct pressure.

I run Kumho tyres of the same size on 130 front has 35psi and run back ones at 40psi and have done for over 12 years with no problems.

Ive a 110 but HD, think my manual says 48psi in the rears but that is really bouncy so I drop that down a bit. 80 is miles too much.

 

That should have been a factory size on later Defender? So LR would have a spec for that too?

Mine are after market wheels and tyres. BFG are saying that the Maximum is 80 psi not that you should put 80 in them. I have heavy duty suspension and rear air bags assistors so I was just wanting an idea of tyre pressure.

I'm on the same tyre but 255/85 r16 and on a 110 hi-cap. I run 35psi front, 50 psi rear.

I started with getting the front tyres to a pressure that they looked and steered nicely then upped the rear pressures until the rolling radius was the same.
