I think we're having a problem with the different versions of the ms2 tires. There are P, P extended load, and LT E rated versions. They have different max pressures. The Ps have 44psi max, the P XLs have 50 psi max, and the LT Es have 80 psi max. Think this explains a big chunk of the different pressures.
You've got to be sure you're comparing apples to apples. Little differences in aspect ratios can make difference as well.
This table shows how many different possible tires we could be comparing.

What are you towing it with?
A stiff suspensioned 1 ton will beat a trailer more than a softer suspensioned 1/2 ton will.
That's one thing those who recommend a gargantuan TV don't take into account.

2012 Chrysler Town & Country minivan...600 lb. bars. We're not overdoing it.

Thanks for your insight, however. What you say is true.

Correct WD bars help mitigate some of the effects of stiff suspensions. s. Lighter bars for heavier suspension. Good luck

But doesn't wheelbase also factor into bar selection? Andy at CanAm suggested 1,400 lb. bars for us -- towing FC25 with a crewcab F-150. He said stronger bars were needed to transfer enough weight to the front suspension, given the relatively long wheelbase.
