Guessing you are 2WD? My suggestion is 80 if 4wd and use the inflation chart and add 10psi for the fonts if 2wd. I HIGHLY advise getting the front end toe set to 1/64" or you WILL have outer edge stepping. Then leave rears where they are and only rotate fronts side to side leaving the rotation the same. This requires removing the tires from the wheels and have the outsides become the insides.

Rears use the inflation chart and add 5psi. Unloaded run 30-35.

I have a lot of experience with all the above. Best ride and tire life.

Yes, 2 WD. I'm going to go lower on the rear tires, the ride is just too harsh. Actually I'll probably never rotate the tires, I've never done it on any vehicle I've ever owned. We put about 70,000 miles on our last truck over a period of 17 years. [emoticon] This one probably won't be much more, so they will most likely age out before they wear out, just like the trailer tires.

Report back in 5k and tell me your front tires are not wearing on the outer edges. Your money, your tires I have a lot of experience with this. Unless your front end has already been aligned to the spec I mentioned you WILL be getting outer edge "stepping".

Ron, even on a 2W drive model?

BTW I miss my 2015 3500 Laramie is many ways, however looking at diesel prices compared to gas, I decided the little 2.7L Ecoboost serves me will now. Wish it had power folding mirrors. It's 12" horizontal display looks like it belongs in the dash, and not stuck there with bubble gum.
