    The psi in my door jam says I should run 26 psi which doesn't seem right to me. I am currently running 35 psi. Should I go off what my door jam says or should I use something else?

    26psi is for stock load range tires. You should really do the flour test (google it) to get perfect wear pattern. I use the door jamb specs but I still run the stock P rated Michelin tires.

    I have the stock tire size, just the new rims make the tread 2 inches wider, I think I should use 26 psi

    Stock load range too? (which is P, I think), then yes, I would use door jamb info.

    My label shows 26 front and 29 rear with 225/75R15 P-rated tire. I run that pressure with Michelin P-rated 235/75R15 and tires lasted over 80k miles each time.
    Now I switched to LT type BFG KO2 30/9.5R15 and in order to have them loaded properly I calculated 30psi in front and 33psi on rear. Thy run smooth exactly like my good old Michelin.
    I have no mods (lift, bumpers etc) and I carry camper shell on the back.
