Chevrolet's recommended tire pressure is on a sticker the driver's door, and the tire vendor's pressure is on the tire of course. My opinion is try pressures somewhere in that range until you are happy with the ride, but take into account that the pressure will fluxuate with temperature, so keep it below the max pressure per tire manufacturer.

The pressure noted on the sidewall of the tire is the MAXIMUM recommended pressure. Running at the maximum may result in increased tire wear in the center of thread. Exceeding the maximum recommended pressure may result in tread separation and loss of control.

With that said, you should pressurize your tires to the manufacturer recommended pressures found on the sticker located on the end of the drivers door. A few more psi to improve handling is permissible, however, never exceed the maximum tire manufacturers psi rating found on the sidewall of the tire.

I run 32 in the front and 29 in the back. Looks low sometimes but no back effects. Run the same in every vehicle I have had.

Mine says 32 I like runnning them at 34 all around. If am crazy I run them at 36 for better gas mileage. Of course I run them at like 25-30 offroading depending on how crazy I am going and what the terrian is.

the 32psi on the sticker inside your door I believe is recomended by the factory for optimum ride quality... I run mine over that pressure because the BFG AT's really look like they're squatting with just 32 psi....
