Thread: rough ride

  1. #1

    Default rough ride

    i have a 1995 burban 2500 with a 454. i feel every bump. new tires. at 55 psi. any thought to why. I read that they are smooth when driving but i feel everything.

    55 psi seems awfully high. It's probably why you feel everything.

    55 seems high. experiment some and start at something like 45 psi. i ran my old tires (33x12.5r17) at 45. my current tires run at 40. my brother has low friction tires on his civic hybrid that run at 60 psi.
