Nice.

You have LT tires, as do I on my 2500. They call for more PSI and can bear more weight then the P (passenger) tires that the OP is referring to.

The sticker give you the appropriate pressures for all circumstances as long as you stay within the maximum load.

Doesn't the side of tire state the maximum load for the tire at the maximum stated pressure?

My tires are at the maximum pressure whenever the trailer is hitched. Definitely do not want to be under inflated with a load!

The tires you have can go on dozen of different application maybe more. So going by what is written on the side is wrong...you wont break anything for sure but you are going to ride a skateboard !!! When Ford per example states that a truck can carry 2000 pounds they calculate the pressure to carry it, and its the one you should use all the time. Going by how look a tire is misleading, just remember when they started to install radial tires on car ..peoples were driving dangerously overinflated tires beleiving they were too low compare to what they were use to see on the old Uniroyal belted Fastrack in the seventies

You may want to upgrade to 10 ply LT tires.

I have a Ram 2500, on my tv, I run 80lb front and back. On my Pinnacle, I run 80lbs.

I am a rather a newbie to towing fw, does anyone see any issues with having my tv front at 80 lbs? This is the max pressure for my tires.

its very simple, will keep headaches away forever, look at the door jamb of the truck driver side,you wil find a sticker stating truck max load, tire size and tire pressure, if your tire match whats on the sticker then you have the proper pressure determined by the manufacturer, go by that,mforget the rest
