Default Tire inflation for towing with Michelin LTX275/65R20

Change P Goodyear tires to LTX275/65R20 E rated tirefor towing.
What tire pressure should I use? I'm towing at max capacity

I think the max pressure on those tires as I have the same but don't tow is in the early 40's.

Read the rating on the tire sidewall & go with the maximum pressure listed. l always run the max in the front tires, but not in the rear unless I've got a heavy load -- if the center of the tread is wearing faster than the edges the pressure is too high -- if the edges wear faster it's too low.

I have the factory rims on truck. Would that be too much pressure for the rims?

No it wouldn't be -- wheels, tires, suspension, etc. capacities are all figured into the design of the truck before the 1st one of that model was ever built.
