Thoughts on Tire Pressure
Some of you who've been towing a FW longer than I - I'd appreciate your thoughts.
The Tires on my 2016 F150 are at 36lbs - which is what the door sticker calls for. When I drop the hitch, the back of the truck moves down perhaps an inch - looks good, and the weights are all within limits per my last check at the CAT scale.
But the rear tires look "low" when I drop the trailer. My dealer even commented the first time I hitched up (you need some air in those tires.)
On the tire it says the maximum cold pressure is 45lbs. I assume Ford recommends 36lbs to improve ride?
I've taken several long trips with the FW and the truck tires don't overheat or show any unusual wear. Part of me says, if they aren't getting hot because of flexing, and they aren't wearing the outside tread, then leave them alone. Part of me says - pump them up to 45lbs when towing cause tires shouldn't look like that.
Anybody else have similar issues - where do you run your TV tires?
