Question Air pressure for M/T slicks

I have been running Mickey Thompson slicks for several years. I used to get about 150-180 runs on them before they wore out. I use 28x10.50-15's and have always run them at 12 psi. Since going to a trans brake 2 years ago, I can only seem to get about 100 passes before the 60' times get very inconsistent. It seems that the sidewalls are giving out because they usually have about 1/2 of their "tread" left. Could it be that I need to run higher air pressure when using a trans brake? - Kyle
