Update as of June, 2018: Have kept 40# on all tires since new (Feb. '17). "Ride" feels good, to me. Gas mileage is good and wear patterns are even. Planning to stay with the "40".

Mid June: Still running +2# front/rear. Notice tire "thump" after sitting a week. Not untoward, just mentioning. Anticipate mileage review in late July following travel to-from Colorado.
