Max PSI for factory chrome wheels

In the near future I'll be switching out the GY P-metrics for some LT C or E load. Does anyone know with certainty the maximum PSI rating on the factory 18" wheels?

Thx

Rims should be able to withstand over 300 psi. Your tire pressure is crucial. Go by the pressure on the door post for factory rims and I'm sure someone will have proper pressure ratings for your size of tire and weight of your truck. Sorry, I misread. Your drivers door post should have the proper pressure. Otherwise consult your owners manual.

Am I the only one that's confused here ? Why are you worried about how many psi the wheel can withstand ??

Anything more than recommended tire pressure is a waste of air and time.

What air would you put in now? Winter or spring? Do you need to exchange your air for the new year?

I'm running full synthetic factory spec air for both summer and winter. Costs a little extra for both sets, but worth it in the long run.

I don't go for all that fancy Synthetic stuff. I just talk to the flat tire. All that hot air, causes the tire to swell right up. I could-a saved you some doe Mike!....................LMFAO!!
