The tire pressures given on the charts take into account the heat buildup and pressure. But the pressure should only be checked when the tires are cold (sitting overnight or driven less than 1 mile)

Sorry! I was looking at the chart for tires made before 2/28/06

So the 80 PSI all around would be enough for your use.
If front tires start to show any riveing. Add 10 PSI more.
