Well I found the Ford Towing Guide online and this is what they have to say about tire pressure:

TIRE PRESSURE
Underinflated tires get hot and may fail,
leading to possible loss of vehicle control.
Overinflated tires may wear unevenly.
Tires should be checked often for
conformance to recommended cold
inflation pressures.

Sounds to me that it is better to error on the high side rather than the low side. Another thing I read in another forum is to follow the door tag if you have the original tires, if not follow side wall. Anyone know what kind of tires came on a Ford F150 5.4L?

Yes, that is true.

Unfortunately, that is not true.

If you are using the same size as listed on the vehicle tire placard, then the pressure listed there is as applicable as the original tires.
