    they are both the same size just different load ratings, my stock tires only call for 29 psi so if i went with the c range what psi should i run them at

    if the ride is stiff drop the psi 5 see if its any better your tires will wear alittle quicker

    so would you run the 6-ply tires at the same psi as the 4-ply

    you can do that, but the tires will probably wear funny a bit, and mileage may go up some........but the ride will be bouncy and harsh,im pretty sure anyways.

    well.....not exactly. adjust the air pressure to what is comfortable to you. you could probably run 35 to 36 in the front, and 32 to 33 in the rear...see how that does for ya.

    Yeah...Adjust your tires to be confortable and wear evenly. but on the flip side of that...Make sure once you are comfortable with the ride and the wear pattern...that the PSI is within the manufacs allowable range.
