Normally as long as it ain't feeding you some HD psi you're ok, in the 35 range I assume?

Just look at the sidewall of the tire and don't exceed the max by more than 1-2 lbs.

You can adjust for a smother ride by decreasing a few pounds.

I run 34 in mine and it does fine.

The door label is for the tires installed at the factory only. If you put LTs on for example, you might have a max air of 60-85 lbs. Or a cheap tire might only max 32 lbs.
