You are absolutely correct, and I must apologize for not being clearer/elaborating in what I was referring to in my post. One particular example I was thinking of was a Tahoe I repaired years ago when I had my custom car business. It had low profile street tires which the client had run at maximum recommended pressure (45lbs if memory serves) for 18 months without incident in Cali. The first day out here of 100+ weather, both right side tires blew their inner sidewalls and upon inspecting the lefts, they were dangerously over-pressured and had deformed as a result.
Of course the argument can be made that these were inappropriate tires for the truck in general (In my opinion they were), and I agree a low profile tire is a different animal than the typically fat tire we are talking about here. My point was meant to be a much more general in that besides the vehicle and wheel the tire is paired up with, environment plays a part too so there is no "simple" answer to a question of pressure on a non-stock setup. One has to look at all variables, their own personal preference, and what they are willing to live with and make an informed decision that works for them and them alone. I do apologize for the confusion and my lack of clarity as I can see how I could mislead someone because of it. It's what I get for typing while sleep deprived I guess!
