Hey Brian, what psi are you running? Did you chalk it?

I am running between 38-39 psi. Probably 36-37 would be ideal for tread wear, but I wear the lugs more when I offroad. So I am ok with the centers taking a little more on the highway. Honestly the main reason I am at that pressure is my stupid tpms, which light up below 38. If I am not at full tread width I am very close.

My tire pressure monitors are apparently set at 30 because I had one go off this last week and it was because the tire was at just under 30 pounds of pressure.

Yeah, it is only on the TRD wheel after the recall or those that took their's in for the recall. I am going to plead to Toyota at my next service to install lower ones.

I just had my tpms replaced a couple days ago, and the light has been on since...

You need to upload it to Photobucket or something similar first, then use the direct link for it to copy here. iPhone probably has a Photobucket App you can download.

I thought this was a settings issue. In other words I didn't realize they changed your tire pressure monitors just reset them.

Change/reset I don't know, but they go off when it falls below 38. Mad That is real easy to do in the winter.

All MTs are after a few thousand miles. Everyone wants the quietest MT. It's called an AT. I didn't think the km2s were too loud, but they were getting there. You are a young guy, you should be ok with that.

I thought the hankooks would not be as loud. They (in this size) aren't any quieter than the km2s ( in the 255 size) were at the beginning. Only time will tell though. It is a different kind of loud, if that makes any sense.

Oh I don't mind the sound, I was a little surprised you ran them for as long as you did considering how loud they are...although I bet yours is a bit more sound proof

The FJ is decent with sound. With the windows open the air volume is so loud due to the lack of a 3rd window, I could barely hear the tires. The winter is what did me in.

Honestly though I have no problem with the sound. I am half deaf from riding motorcycles without anything covering my ears. It's only when I was riding with my wife and kids it bothered me. It was getting harder and harder to hear them.

I am pretty sure I will be selling "gently used" tires every 20,000 miles.

Alright so here is the plan. Nick buys tires, sells them to me 50% off at 5,000 miles. I sell them to Casey 50% off that at 25,000. It's win, win, win.
