I run mine at 46 psi. 80 psi is inflation for 2500 series Dodge Ram. Look on one of the tires and it will list maximum cold inflation pressure. Also the recommended pressure for your vehicle is listed on the door post, driver's side.

I think I will run at 45ish 80 psi seems extremely high plus the front end feels over sensitive since I installed these new tires ...... Thanks
