Can anyone recommend what tire pressure I should run for 33x12.5x15. The shop had them a 35 psi. Seem to be riding just on the center of tread. Any advise would be welcome.

There are so many lines of thought on tire pressures. Putting larger tires on your jeep dosen't mean you air them to the max pressure on the sidewall. That pressure is based on the weight the tire will carry. Most tire pressures are in conjunction with the load rating which means thicker sidewall. By rights, you should only run as much pressure as it takes to move the contact patch just off the edge of the tread. My 31's are load range E and I can run them at 25 before you start to see a difference in the sidewall, I usually wheel at 18 rear and 20 front. But normally run about 30-32. you can run higher, but you wear out the center of the tread. FWIW, Milestar Patagonia have lines on the thread to tell you how much to air them up too. So those are designed to run higher on road pressures. I think this is for MPG.
