Read the side of the tire it tells you max pressure. I would leave them at 60 to keep the ride softer. If you hook up to tow then go to the recomended. I leave mine around 50-55 psi running around town but if I tow or go on a road trip I inflate them to the recomended pressure

you cant use the door jamb for your tire pressure after you replace them with something aftermarket. no longer applies. look at your tire sidewall and see what it tells ya. I run 52lbs or so in my bfg AT tires, didnt want to run em at full pressure unless haulin as I was starting to wear out the middle of the tire. No less than 50 though with the bfg I would think. I am right at the edge of setting off my tire monitor system all the time.

???????? 60 psi for a softer ride?!?!?! Wow! The higher the psi the harder the tire is making the ride harder. My Michelin LTX can be maxed out at 80psi. I do run what the truck says in the door which is 60 all around. Personally I like 55 psi better because I do notice a small difference. But lets be honest.... If you are driving a Duramax you got it for power.... not the ride. So really its all up in the air and for yourself to choose what psi is best for you. But please never overload the psi... your only asking for troubles. :booboo

Thanks.
And you are totally perfect at what you are at. Even if you were towing a light load.

60psi rides alot softer than the 80 most E rated tires call for.I stay around 50-55 and can still tow 4-5k without issues.
