Proper Air Pressure?

Trying to figure out how much air i should have in my tires

Proper Air Pressure?

Postby Phnx [OP] » Feb 11 2012, 9:43pm

I have a 99 silverado 1500 extended cab, and i rarely haul loads in the bed or tow a trailer. So i was wondering how much air pressure i should have. i just have stock rims and some Goodyear Wranglers. i know it says on the sidewall that the max is like 44 psi or something like that, but it never says a recommended pressure. I tried googling my question but i didnt really find any helpful info. Thanks!

There should be a sticker on the drivers' side door, that lists the proper PSI for the front and back tires.
