tire pressure with 37s

I have nitto trail grapplers and was wondering what the best tire pressure was when running these? All I have is a leveling kit and 37s

I wouldn't recommend that at all. If you run maximum PSI in 37's then it's gonna ride like crap and you won't maximize your mileage like you could.
I personally run 55 psi in the front, and 45 psi in the rear when empty. I have only had them on for 1000 miles, but they seem to be wearing good. I'm gonna lower the rear a little bit more due to the fact that the most outerlying row of nipples on the TOP of the tread lugs are still showing. That indicates to me that I can deflate them a little more to get them to sit flat and wear the entire surface. If and when you tow then I highly recommend to run higher pressures when under load.

The pressure on the side of the tire is the maximum allowed on the recemmended wheel. This is usually only used under max load situations.

Also don't go by the number written in the door either since that is intended for the stock tires and again under maximum load situations.

For an E-rated 37 on these trucks you shoulf be able to go down to about 35 in the rear and 45 up front and still get decent wear out of the thread. In most cases you can go even lower to get a better ride and more traction but you will start to see faster tread wear.

Also depend on you tire width vs wheel width, lots of variables! Just gotta find that sweet spot.
