Just curious what pressures others are running at on their 245/75 tires, especially for the snowy conditions ahead?

Stock pressure?
-5 psi?
-10 psi?

Stock unless I am off-road, then I'll drop down to 30 or 35 depending on conditions and what not.

EDIT: I am using 245/75R16 BFG K02's all around, various loads all the time from total vehicle weight of 6500 up to GVRW of 9500 (and even above before oops LOL)

I ran stock pressures for the last 2 years and rotated my Pireli Scorpions AT+,tires every 5K. I had great wear on all tires. +- 1/32". I really think that weight in the rear is the only wildcard for reducing pressure, other than off roading.My van weighs in at 8200#s. Winter traction IMHO,seems to be much more dependent on the tire makeup. I.E. winter tire with softer compound and tread design.

I am really really surprised that this post is not getting more traction, I would have assumed this post would blow up just like all the other tire pressure posts out there.

Maybe if it also asks what brand of oil to use...?

I have BFG KO2 tires 245/70 R17and based on CAT weight (8960 lbs; Front axle 4020; rear axle 4940) and rating of the tires from BFG charts, I run 45 lbs in the front tires (2010 lbs each) and 65 lbs in the rears (2470 lbs). I run 35/45 off road.

I have 245/75R16 AT3W's on my Quigley wagon and I like 45psi front, 60psi rear. I weighed it at first and used that to set the pressures ~45psi for both but the back felt unsure so I raised it a bit.
