2015 2500 159WB High Roof standard Nexen tires DIY camper. Actual weights with liquid tanks half full are front 3650 pounds/1825 per tire, rear 3310 pounds/1655 per tire. An email to Nexen asking for best tire pressures got no response. At the moment I have 62 psi in all tires. Any suggestions for best tire pressure?

Always a good idea to go by the pressures on the tag inside the driver's door. I you have a failure, it backs you up if you need to claim to tire mfg. I always go by my local Discount Tire and buy the Road Hazard insurance. It not only insures the tires against road hazards, nails, sidewall punctures.........., but they will balance and rotate your tires every 5000 miles, and they fix flats free. Other tire stores may do the same, I just use DT cause they are close by, and the guys there are all about customer service and satisfaction. My last Michelin LTX's lasted over 100K. FWIW

The pressures listed on the doors are nearly always for full load weights. If you're not maxing out GVW, shouldn't need to be at max tire pressure. Many Sprinter and Transit folks have been lowering tire pressures a bit from placard values and getting a better ride and handling. Kinda surprised it hasn't really come up here before.
