26 in ther rear feels a lot better for the mud holes i am driving in right now. Its just a softer ride. The only time I noticed the 26 is when I am cornering, otherwise it will do for now.

I used 28/26 in my libero a few years back and no problems.

Same thing here, nobody rides in the back in my car. My libero tyres lasted two and half years with those psi and it boils down to driving style......slow down on bad roads and spot pot holes when u can; it will make a lot of difference in wear and tear on suspension and tyres. :D

I run 36PSI Hot all around on the maxis maz1. With a lower pressure I fine I dont get good steering response and grip from the tires. At 36PSI Hot the steering response is very good and I get really good grip from the tires corning.
