don't go by what is imprinted on the tire, it is telling you that each tire is capable of carrying X amount of weight when inflated to 80 PSI

each tire is capable of carrying some where between 2500 - 3400 when inflated to 80 PSI
Empty your Ram weighs 5,300 pounds

If you drive with your tires at 80 psi, it will feel like your driving a vehicle with metal tires or a Flintstone vehicle, yabba dabba doo !!

Go by your door sticker tire pressure
If you connect up to a trailer that is heavy enough to flatten out the tires, add about 5 pounds
When you are finished towing, drop it back down to the door sticker reading
