What would you say is the proper tire pressure for this truck should be? It has factory tires and wheels.

To get the proper wear from your tires is best to go with the maximum air pressure recommend on the side of the tire. It should be between 35 and 42 pounds.

Here is a guide that will help you:

The proper inflation pressure will be printed on a placard on the driver door jam. I do not recommend using maximum pressure. The engineering of the car can have a dramatic effect on recommended pressures. Some vehicles have an inherent oversteer or understeer tendency and the manufacturer adjusts the pressure staggering accordingly. If you ask any dealer what pressure to run, they will refer you to the placard. You also have a tire monitoring system that can be tripped for high pressure as well as low pressure.
