    Hello everyone... I just got new tires, they are Load Range E 80 PSI tires. My truck is a 2002 2500HD. My question is what pressure are you guys running at during everyday use? I use the truck for sandblasting and I sometimes have a lot sand in it but not all the time. The dealership said 50 in the front and 80 in the rear. Also When plowing, should I increase the front tires to something above 50? Thanks a lot in advance!!

    I run 50-60 front and 80 rear. In the winter months, all four are at 80 psi. These are load range E as well

    You should go by what the sticker says on the driver side door.

    Unfortunately, the sticker on my door had worn completely out before I bought the truck. Any idea what it might have recommended?

    I just went and checked my '04. My sticker says: Cold 55 psi Front and 80 psi for the rear. The tire size is 245/75/16. Hope this helps.

    No problem. I know they are 2 different years. But they are both 2500hd's so i think it will be right.
