Question Tire dilemma

Hey guys,

I'm in a bit of a pickle with my 2013 CREW F-350 4x4. I thought of keeping my F-150 winter tires (General Altimax Artic: thttp://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=General&tireModel=Altimax+Arcti c) and transferring them to my truck.

Now, just a couple of points. 1) I have no intention of towing with these tires.
2) The MAX PSI of these tires is 44#. (Problem #1)
3) The size is smaller than 4.8% than the OEM but still under the recommended 5% MAX. This means slightly different shift points for the transmission. (Problem #2)

Now, understand if I had ordered these tires when I had Bessie (my F-350) I would of purchased the 285/70/17 LT versions. Done and seen. But I don't have LT tires.

So - tire pressure is an issue and so is the TPMS. Are there any other solutions out there other than buying LT tires? Is there a programming tool I can use to fix these two problems?
