I think it's very unlikely w/ the suspension assuming you're at 55mph compared to 65mph+. The tires will be more susceptible to damage from larger obstacles like bit pot holes or rocks, but as long as your commute is reasonably smooth you should be fine.

I personally drive at 55mph, but the person who I am asking for usually does 75-80mph. They also encounter some pretty bad highways. Michigan roads are a... well, a *****. This person also carries anywhere from 100-500 lbs plus on a daily basis due to their line of work. They drive a GMC Envoy XL.

If the load range of the tire is correct for the weight of the vehicle-with a Suburban I'd say battle tank - there should be no harm in increased tire pressures . If disgression is used , that is .Try 80% of max sidewall first then bump it up 2-3 psi a tank fill to owner satisfaction or within 20-30 % *over* max sidewall . This is my personal way of testing and not a recommendation to *just do it* without owner attention .

Sorry for the tire rack recommendation - I just find the site useful for a lot of info about rolling stock Not just shopping . Pertinant info follows :PSI & Temp fluctuation

Load rating

Load Index

I have run 60 psi for ~10K miles in the tires that were on my Saturn with no visible signs of uneven wear. My son's car has 55-60 psi in the same type of tires with no odd wear patterns either. They both are Goodyear Assurance Comfortread.

Before I got on this forum, I ran mine anywhere from 35-37 for thousands of miles, no abnormal wear. The car says to use 29. Now however I have them at 39 psi. we'll see how they wear after a year or so...

I think it's safe to say both literally and figuratively, your mileage may vary.

More durable tires with stronger belts are likely to wear more evenly. I'd wager that the really cheap ones don't.

My tires are only rated for 35 psi, but I'm running 50 in front and 60 in the back.

I did have a tire warp on me. If your tries are new and good quality then I see no problems running 50-55psi.

Check out this thread to see the tire damages.

At higher speeds, a car with overinflated tires, will more likely handle skittish at higher speeds. Just something to watch out for.
