Is running a 8 ply off road tire, rated to 65 psi dangerous on a Chevy 2500 HD truck? Dealer put those on it?

The Chevy dealer sold me BF Goodrich LT285/75R16, 8 ply off road tires with my truck. I had a blowout, and the tire store says these are underrated for my 3/4 ton truck. They said I need a tire capable of holding at least 80 PSI, this one holds 65. I am going back to the dealer, and need advise on how to win my case for a set of new, proper tires.

    you are supposed to run 10 ply, e-load range on HD trucks, 80psi is way to high for a truck tire. check the door sill and it will tell you the proper inflation pressure and load range
