Question TIRE PRESSURE SETTINGS???



Ok guys...I'm sure we've talked about this before. What is the proper inflation psi that I should be running on stock tires without a load. I have the 17'' rims that came with my Lariat and 265 pirelli's. Tire say's maximum pressure (cold & with a load) is 80psi.

I always have them at 80psi. I don't usually have heavy loads, only on occasion do I really load out the truck.

What would you all reccomend for an average daily driver F250 commuting with just the trucks load of passengers, fuel and some gear???

Also, What is the largest tire I can fit on those 17'' factory rims without rubbing? The truck is 2 wheel drive and at stock height. I want the tallest and widest tire possible.

Thanks guys!
