2013 Rubicon Wheels - Tire Pressure?

Just purchased a set of 2013 Rubicon Wheels to put on my stock 2013 Wrangler Sport.

Question 1: What tire pressure is used on these Rubicon wheels? The tire pressure chart on the door jab would be for the stock steel wheels versus the larger Rubicon - 255/75R17

Question 2: Is there a way to tell if the TPMS is still installed on these wheels I purchased on eBay? If no simply way (like pulling valve core and looking). Will it be evident quickly after driving? In another words, if they are not present, TPMS light would activate?

Question 3: Or what does the valve stem on 2013 Rubicon wheel look like? All rubber expect threads? Or a brass stem, etc? Picture of my valve stem appended.

Thanks in advance.

I have a brass stem and the dealer had my psi set at 39. I have been running about that for 5k mi so far.

Also depends on the tire. I'm still running the stock mud terrains. On the trail they look a little low at 20psi but do great on the sand and rock. I live in the high desert.

Factory spec is 37 psi for stock Rubicon wheels and tires. The valve stems are rubber just like in your picture. On your 2013, if these still have the TPMS in them, then all should be good.

I think the light is set to go of at 34 psi on a Rubicon. Depending on what pressure your tires are suppose to be from the factory, will depend on if the light will be on all the time or not.

Hope this help you.
