I've got a set of those right now.
That's 20psi max at 2295lbs max load on that axle.
If you want to get exact, weigh your truck, (front and rear seperately) divide that into the max rating of the tire (2295).
The quotient you get, divided into the max psi of the tire (20)
gives you your psi. Say your rear actually weighs 2295. The quotient is 1. 20/1= 20psi.
Or just do the chaulk test. :)
I haven't weighed my bronco, but I'm certain it excedes the 2295lbs rating of these tires (esp) when I haul stuff out on jobs, plus the tools and crap that's always in it.
I run around 22lbs on the road and actually they seem to be wearing nicely (if at all, so far).
I can't help but think about taking a groover to them though. They always just LOOK like they're wearing more in the middle with that tight pattern they've got in the center...
