This has probably been asked a thousand times by a thousand different people, but anyway.

So my tires have a max pressure of 44-50 psi, the compliance sticker(?) on the door frame says I should use 26 psi, and people generally use (so I've heard) about 30 psi.

So what do I use, for general day to day road driving?
I heard somewhere, I think on a 4wd course, the compliance sticker.

Go with what the car manufacturer (tyre placard) says, regardless of size tyre you run. If you have it loaded and/or are doing extended periods of high speeds, you can bump them up (30-35).

just cruizin

Tyre manufacture will give pressuresfor maximum load rating which will be around 1,000 per tyre not the 1200 to 1300kg a sierra weighs in at
