    In 2000 american tire and car- makers calculated the pressures with a formula that came to lower pressure for the same load. As late as 2006 America stepped over for P tires in SL andXL to the calculation that is used for all kind of tires in Europe since decades. That explanes the front and 55 psi wil be the savest advice. Rear is set at 80 psi , because rear is fully loaded mostly overloaded. Ohh.... now realise the 80 psi is the pressure needed for maxload of an E-load tire, so 45 can be for OEM P-tires and E load LT-tire needs higher pressure for same load then P , because its stiffer and so with same deflection lesser surface on the ground. To make this story short, for normal use ,so only driver and a little load 55 psi could prove to be OK. But if you give me details, I can calculate a safe cold pressure for your situation.
