Question What Tire Pressure For My Tires

I just got two new tires for the rear of my DC Long Bed. Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2. P265/65R17. The tire shop put 44psi in them.

I checked the two tires on the front of the truck, that the dealer put on new when I purchased the truck. They are Bridgestone Dueler H/T 684II, R265/65R17. They both had 44psi in them when I left the dealer.

My door sticker says front and rear tire pressure should be 29psi.

So, any suggestions for the tire pressure for my tires?

the question I have is... is your tire pressure light on? cause if its on... I'll bring down to the sticker's numbers.

The tire pressure warning light is not on.

I know works because after I got the nail in the sidewall (reason for new tires) the light did come on.

As long as they're all the same, the light won't come on. 35 is a good psi to keep them at for ride comfort and tread life.

Draw a line across the tire with chalk and then drive a short way (100 yards max) see where the line is worn. Edges warn with chalk left in the middle is under inflated, middle worn with outsides chalked is over inflated...and even chalk wear across the tire is "perfect"...Adjust from that point.

Sorry, and Thanks
Thought It Was A Comment and Didn't Give a Thought to Search For It.
Very Logical Process, Now That I've Ruled Out the Chalk-Line from A Carpenter's Tool Bag
Thanks Again
