Rubicon BFG tires PSI

Had my tires remounted on black mopar rims at Discount, when I got the Rubi back, the infamous TPMS light was on solid. I know sometimes they have to "relearn" after a swap, so I didn;t sweat it, but it stayed on for 2 days. I checked the PSI and it was at like 35-36. I called Discount, they confirmed they inflated to 35 PSI. I told them about the light and also the fact that the tires should be at 37 according to the vehicle sticker. They said bring it back if light does not go off after 50 miles. I just filled them to 40 PSI all around (including the spare), and about ten miles later the light went off. My question is now do I have to bleed air out of them? I'm afraid if the TPMS is that sensitive (turns on at 35 PSI), I might accidentally set it off again. Is 40 too high? I would just as soon leave them at 40 PSI, as long as I will not cause any premature treadwear. I think the tires are rated for 50 PSI max.
