What PSI Should I run my Blizzak ws80?

Just got my tires installed by big o and they inflated it to 40 psi... I feel like that is extremely high for winter tires....

What do you guys usually run?

Also I heard blizzaks have a tread wear indicator? how does that work?

From blow u pics of the Blizzak LM-32 I ordered.. The tread has a 'step' halfway down the depth of the tread blocks. I assume that is where the special snow/ice rubber ends and ordinary rubber begins.

If the tires are on the same size wheels, (like 17" or 16" and the same tread width as the regular tires, then they should be at the same pressure as your regular tires also.


(if you went to a 15" wheel, and 185/65/15 tires.. Who knows what would be a good pressure???) But the place to start is the stock OE tire pressure.
