Tyre Pressures

I have trawled through the last 2700 messages to try to find notes on tyre
pressures but without success. I remember a posting on pressures when running
BF Goodrich All Terrain tyres.
Can anyone offer advise for general road use with normal loads as I can't seem
to find details on any websites.

It says 32 psi all round. But I think this is too low, (judging by the
wear on the tyres) and I run mine at 36 psi. (That's 2.2 bar
officially, and I use 2.5 bar)

Or even possibly in the inside of the driver's door?

and mine is also 2.5 bars but the size of the tyre is 265/70-16.
isn't that pressure too much?

I run my BFG AT's at 40 psi all round. This seems to work well for me.

I found that at the "correct" pressure according to the user manual I
was getting more wear at the edges than at the centre, so I raised it by
roughly 10%. As far as I can see my tyres now wear evenly across the
width.
Also higher tyre pressures use less fuel, and make the steering a bit
lighter.
