Right I have 17 inch mitsi wheels (standard) on my pickup. What pressure should I be putting in them. Jeep says 29 psi but they look low. So I put 36 they still look soft but right.  Tyre size is 245 65 17 general grabbers

Think I'd be asking Mitsubishi rather than Jeep!

From memory the tyre pressure sticker is on the door pillar......and it starts at 29psi for an unladen vehicle.

Are you using a good quality tyre pressure gauge (calibated if possible)? Also, are you checking when cold?

 The door stickers say 2 bar which is around 30lb sq inch. The size of the tyre does not really alter anything, bigger tyre may be more square inches in volume but as your pressure guage is measuring in bar or lbs per square inch it will be showing same reading. the recommended tyre pressures are based on the pressure needed to support the weight of the vehicle throughout the general performance on road, thus they recommend higher pressure in rear tyres when carrying full load or towing. For off road you can vary the pressures to suit the terrain but should return to normal specs for road use.

FYI I call my pickup a jeep.
Did you really think I'd ring jeep to ask about tyre pressures for a l200 lol
It was just a query for pressure as 29psi looks a bit soft.

It's bad enough the amount of people that refer to my 50yr old landy as a Jeep.......It's not a Jeep!

You might as well call your L200 a Hilux
