Tire Pressure For Toyo MTs

Just wondering if anyone has lowered there tire pressure to drive on snow covered and icey roads? I am running Toyo MTs with 60psi. just looking for a few opinions? Tires are awesome in mud with the high psi but dont seem so good in the snow.

Four winters in AK and never had any issues. Never put any weight in the bed either.

MTs aren't the best on ice. Lowering the pressure some can help, but the lack of siping and firmer rubber compound is what really hurts you.

35 is a bit low unless you're driving a Tacoma

What tire size and load rating are they, and is it diesel or gas?
