I just had new 185/80s put on last night. I expect the tire shop put 32lbs in all. I'll check. However, I did notice that the outer edges of the front tires showed no road contact - no dirt / white dust on the outer edges, center contact only. Rode a little stiff up front too. I'll check them and drop front pressure and see what happens.
