Tyre shop topped up rear tires to 45 and front to 35

So 30 all around with no load.

 

For a 2005 Ford Ranger 4-door 4x4 yes.

 

Your truck handbook should have the recommended pressures if there's no sticker on the driver's door (our sticker is not visible from farang head height, stooping is required to even see that it's there).

My (2005) Ranger 4-door calls for 39 rear, 30 front for full load operation. Check the driver's door for a placard with recommended pressures.
 
Whatever you do, don't go above the "maximum pressure" stated on the tyre sidewall.
 
Also, please can you post images using a common codec, like .jpg so we non Apple users we can view them.

No one really answered the question if 45PSI is safe with the heavy load in the back

driving fast over pot holes the car is not handling well- feels like its bouncing around a bit / losing control.

What would you expect?

Hmmmm, I was expecting some sort of leaf extension, wazzit supposed to do?

 

I think it is designed to transfer/equalize the leaf springs. Almost the reversal of  independent suspension  side to side. Maybe  useful on very  rough surfaces but  can not see it doing  much for traction.

If it's not greater than the "maximum continuous inflation pressure" on the sidewall it will be fine. Might be a bit lively with nothing in the back.

I run 40psi all round on my  Vigo. Max psi stated on  tire wall is  54psi.

For some that  might seem a bit high  in the front but I hate  the feeling of  "sledging" on corners.

One thing to  check regularly  is the  state of the shock absorbers. I have found  that they  do not last well. Probably due to the combination of high temps and  so common  rough  roads.

If they are unequal in the front it  can play havoc  on the  ABS response.

I think it's supposed to calm down the rear end, reduce body roll and the like.

 

It may help if you run empty when set up for loads.

My pickup Isuzu - 10 y old - ( it's a 4x2 ) 4 doors and automatic transmission had Firestone tyres ;

I did 127.000 km with  factory-fitted tires , see photos, they were not yet shabby , have a look

In every  garage in Thailand they want to put 40 PSI in the four wheels even it's written 29 inside one of the door;

even in Isuzu garage in Sawang Daen Din  they were surprised to discover this inscription

So what does the door jam sticker say regarding your Vigo tyre PSI...?

38F 42R unladen  38 F 51R Laden.

 That will be for the tyre rating as factory fitted whatever they were.

I am running Maxxis Bravo A/T. Do the  job for me.
