Unloaded Tire Pressure 265/75R16, 97 2WD Crew

What PSI are you running when you are unloaded on 265/75R16? Also, are your tires D or E Rated? I'll be putting them on a 1997 2WD Crew.

I want to improve the comfort level while not affecting treadlife when I get new tires. I'm leaning towards E rated just to be on the safe side.

I run what the factory says. 60 in rear and 65 in front. No problems here, LRE on mine, and back is rough riding, but I do have timberlines on the rear too!!!

Looking for a FORD.

I saw somewhere where they were running 40-50PSI. I would think 80 would be like riding on bricks.
