Hello, I am a newby in replying to others. But I happen to have been running your size tires for 2 years now and I have did many chalk test and find 33-35PSI to be great for my jeep rubicon. Nice even wear. Now probably as yu are already aware situations change, in snow without chains I air down to no lower than 12 Psi and for rock crawling 15-18 Psi. Hope this helps.

Its just they feel really stiff on the jeep. Thought maybe i had to lower them a little for onroad pavement driving. But since you had the same size. Did you put wheel spacers on those tires?

Duratrac PSI

Yes , I chose to put 1 & 1/2 inch Spider Trax wheel spacer kit on mine. Eventually I got the 17 inch AEV Black Savagre wheels which have the proper offset so you no longer need your spacers.
Hope this helps.
