What is the correct tire pressure for LX470?

It is on the driver's side frame sticker. 32 front, 35 back I believe.

I personally prefer 35 on all four.

I thought it was 29/32 or something like that. Check the sticker in the driver's side door jamb. The pressure is for OEM-sized P-rated radial tires. Note that LT tires require much higher pressures. Regardless, I inflate my stock tires to 32-33psi front/rear. I find I get good fuel economy and even wear at these pressures. Keep in mind that during the winter, you have to inflate often since a sudden drops in temps can cause your tire pressure to really drop. I find I have to check every month as the weather gets colder, but in the spring, as it warms, the pressure increases with temp, so don't have to inflate as often. Pick a day w/ low humidity to inflate. This will result in less moisture inside the tire, less temp fluctuation, and only helps the rubber life as tires degrade internally due to moisture.

Maybe there is more to this, but shouldn't you just go by what is on the sidewall?

IMO-the numbers on the door give you the 'smoothest' ride, but running 33-36# all around improves mileage and tires last longer...I add 3-4#s...the sticker recs F29 & R32...I run ~F33 & R35 and this seems to give me the best trade-off...(at least that's what I start out with)...probably leaks down a little every week or 2)...34-35#s all around makes it simple...

remember for every 10 degrees the outside temps go down you lose 1 psi.
