And if your vehicle came with a LR E it would state 50 psi, my LR C are 45, and the only tires with a recommended pressure of 35 are P series. And that only because you get no more load carrying ability at pressures above 35 on a p series.35 on a LR E is dangerous. Most LR E tires have a weight rating of 3200 to 3600lbs. At 35, you are well below half that rating which doubled up does not come close to the GAWR of your truck.
The minimum that should ever be in a LR E (not including those that have a weight rating of 4000+) would be 45. The 4000+ LR E could be okay for normal everyday unloaded driving at 40.
The construction of these tires require a higher pressure for support. Low pressure cause heat which will cause tire failure.
The federal mandates for the TPMS systems state that with a LR E tire, the sensor should put out a waring at 46psi.
LT tires do give a rougher ride, no doubt, but only because they require higher pressure and are built far sturdier. If you do not want the rougher ride, get a P series tire.
YellowFX4, you could drop them to 50 with no problem, but as I stated, do not go below 45 unloaded.
