Question tire pressure

Hi guys,
I just had a set of Nitto 325 70R 17 Terra Grapplers put on my 2006 Ram 1500 TRX4. It is the regular cab, short box and I had a 2 1/2" leveling kit with 1" wheel spacers put on to clear the tires. The wheels are the factory 17" x 8" wide. The tire dealer put 50# of air in them, but Nitto said 40#, most of my driving will be paved highway. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Chuck

the best way to find the correct tire pressure for your truck front and rear is the CHALK method / steal your sisters or daughters side walk chalk and make a nice wide straight line across your tires and drive straight for a 100 feet / if the pressure is correct the chalk will be worn off evenly / if its worn in the center you have to much pessure / if its worn on each side you dont have enuf / and dont forget to rotate your tires every 5 to 7 thousand miles or every other oil change
