Are you running 9.00 R16 or 11.00 R16 Michelin XZL tires?

I'm running the 11.00 x 16. I was originally running their XL tires. Previous owner had them at 50 PSI. I dropped o 45 and liked the ride much better.

When I switched to 11.00 R16, I found a spec sheet with the load carrying capabilities at various tire pressures. I noticed that the specs recommended about 10 PSI lower for the XZL tires vs the XL tires for the same load carrying wieghts. I dropped my XZL tires to 40 PSI, I have not yet tried lower, but intend to try out 35 PSI at some point.
