Need tire pressure advice

I just got some 315 75 15 kuhmo kl71.

so far so good just have to get used to the mud terrain feel on asphalt.

what tire pressure is everyone running on their trucks?

I have absolutely no idea what to set it at especially with the powerstrokes being so heavy.

Ive always run 55-60psi in 3/4 ton trucks, seems like the tires wear fairly well and dont get squishy. I will say that I feel every bump in the road. Every one has their own thought on how a truck should ride.

How yo like the Kumhos? ive been seriously considering a set next fall.

so far so good on the tires. i have only put on a couple hundred miles.

the one thing im having to get used to is the mud terrain tire sound and feel.

the sound i s very minimal and i think that the diesel motor is louder than the tires. ride is comfortable and solid so far.
