I would never go by the sticker. I use the tire manufacturer information. Need I say Firestone vs Ford Explorer? Ford recommended dangerously low pressures that cause major problems.

Remember there is a big difference between 255 and 275. Most of the Moho's that came with the 255 had to run 110 psi to carry the weight. I know it's been said but get it weighed. It's simple to do and there are CAT scales all over the place. Every truck stop has one. If you are concerned about how to do it park and go in and ask.
All you need to do is pull up to the scale and if you can reach the call button tell them it's a private weight not part of a company. Have your front axle on the first pad and your rear on the second pad with the toad on the third. If you need to be out side to reach the key pad just stand on the front pad. When done just go in and get your sheet. You can reweigh as many time in one day as you want. So if you want to see how a full tank of water effects the front axle go fill it and reweigh. Very easy to do and very important info to have.
Ernest I would think that going to a tire that carries more weight would give you a better ride if you are tire shopping. If I remember correctly you have that are Mercedes engine with the 3000 Trans. Your weak spot are the tires.

If I remember previous posts, Ernest has a 360QS with the Mercedes/3000 powertrain. The 360QS, being shorter, has fewer weight issues, and tire pressure would be less than a 390. If I recall earlier posts, I also remember him going to aluminum wheels (also lighter). I also have a 360QS, however I still think it best to work from actual loaded weights.
