    I checked my tire pressure today and they were all low. I had just taken it into the dealer for an oil change and supposedly they check tire pressure. The door jam says the front should be 60 psi and the rear should be 80 psi. So I went ahead and pumped em up to spec. Would the dealer have underinflated them for a better ride? Both the fronts were at 55 psi and both the rears were at 70 psi. Like it had been done by the mechanic on purpose. Maybe this explains why I am only getting 9-10 miles per/gallon. Do you guys follow the specs on the door jam or what?

    Since my trucks are working almost every day I keep them at 80psi all the time. I guess I could get longer tread life out of lower pressures but 40,000+ miles out of tire is OK with me.

    I had 60 psi all the way around on mine, but I don't haul anything that heavy in mine.
