Tyre shop topped up rear tires to 45 and front to 35

Recommended Posts

I raised this thread and learnt a lot from some of the esteemed members of this forum:

 

I subsequently put 8 sand bags in the back of my pickup and then visited the tire shop where I originally purchased the cheap low quality chinese tires. I told them that last week in the rain I proceeded to overtake at normal speed and my pickup slid (lost control) for a few seconds. Also mentioned that driving fast over pot holes the car is not handling well- feels like its bouncing around a bit / losing control.

 

They swapped the rear tires and put in the front/ rear in the back. After this I showed them the extra weight in the back and he said that he should top up 45 in the rear tires and 35 in the front. Is this correct?

 

One of them looked under the back of the truck and suggested I pay 3200 for the gadget in the photo. What is this for? Is it worth the money? 

thanks again

You could be right considering the OP wets his panties every time the back end breaks away.

My (2005) Ranger 4-door calls for 39 rear, 30 front for full load operation. Check the driver's door for a placard with recommended pressures.

 

Whatever you do, don't go above the "maximum pressure" stated on the tyre sidewall.

 

Also, please can you post images using a common codec, like .jpg so we non Apple users we can view them.

 

Really?

39 psi rear?

Our 2008 4 door Hilux Prerunner is 29 all round.

My take is it doesn't matter what road tyres you buy, comfort always depends on the air PSI within the tyre and the suspension type on the vehicle.

 

Also depends what Isuzu you have to know would help because there are different model types with different size tyres, I found the 4 door rode better than the 2 door smartcab we bought.

I guess 4 doors are bought as cars in a way where as we wanted a workhorse.

 

When our Isuzu Hi-Lander is loaded 29 front 41 rear recommended.

When I use just as a car the hard suspension is for heavy work so to compensate 27 front 27 rear with soft Bridgestones it's not a bad ride,

 

They reckon these are the best shocks for pick ups if there adjustable maybe even better.   

Bilstein (24-186742) 5100 Series Rear Shock Absorber. ...

Bilstein 24-187367 5100 Series Front Shock. ...

3200bt for 3 (or possibly more) sheep seems a pretty good deal....

Or am I reading the OP incorrectly.
