Default Question on Tire pressure 1999 F-150

I own a 1999 F-150 4wd xlt equipped with 26575R16 load range E tires. Anyone advise on tire pressure with no load and up tp 800 lbs cargo. Most of the time I haul very little so would have to inflate for bigger load. What is the minimum and maximum air pressure? As always, any help would be appreciated.

I had the same size and load range tires on my Suburban, and I ran 85 psi when towing/hauling and 60 psi otherwise. These were Dunlop Radial Rover tires, by the way...a GREAT tire.

So in your situation I'd recommend going with about 60 - 65 psi....you'll be fine.

The max psi is usually listed on the sidewall. A load range E is usually 65 to 85 max when loaded. For everyday use I run 42 to 44 psi and find that gives a good ride.
