Question about my tire pressure

I was wondering what I'm supposed to keep my tire pressure at during the summer/winter? I have a f250 2001 7.3 on bfg's all terrains 35x12.5x 17 and they are D range. Any ideas?

You don't change the pressure with the seasons though...

Ultimately, I would use the door stickers pressures to start, after say 3000mi read the tread depth across and go up/down to compensate for uneven wear (more in the middle and lower, less and increase). My feeling is, you'll be fine-tuning for your driving conditions, loading, and driving "style" and that somebody elses recommendations may not be what You're gonna need

I rotate every 5k and keep them about 10 psi under max. Always check pressure after they have cooled. I generally check mine after theyve sat overnight.
