When empty I run at 65psi all around. If I hook up the trailers, I bump them back up to 75-80 depending on what trailer I'm putting on.
I'm surprised you can run at 55 and 45 psi. Isn't your TPMS going off every time you start the truck? Anytime I'm below 62psi, my TPMS warning is flashing.
My 1st set of Factory Michelins went 30,000 miles and needed to be replaced. I pretty much rotated every oil change at 7500 miles each. My tires wore pretty even, just wore fast, But I tow a LOT.
The replacement Michelins ( I used Michelins again because they Pro-Rated my tread wear on the original tires) ran 40,000 miles, But I had a lot more interstate hiway mileage on those and a little bit less towing. Again I rotate each oil change, so around 7,500 mile avg rotation.
I suspect your front suspension problems that were mentioned, were just the typical Death Wobble that these trucks develop. I had mine fixed at 35,900 miles before my standard warranty expired. If a somebody buying my truck pulled a warranty report it would show up, But all it really was, was replacing the front Steering dampener. And I replaced the stock shocks and the problem has never returned.
I had about 3 really rough shifts in my first 36,000 miles. So while it was in at35.900, I mentioned that and my dealer replaced 3 selenoids in the tranny. Haven't had a rough shift since. So again, if somebody buying my truck pulled a report they would see that warranty work. But it was not a big deal and it fixed a minor problem.
I'm not defending your dealer, I don't know what work was or was not done on your truck. Replacing the turbo is a bigger project. But the other items could have been something pretty minor. As with any car purchase, Find someplace that you trust to service your truck.
