Stock 17" wheels tire pressure

What tire pressure do you use for the stock Goodyear Wrangler 32"? Mine were at 35 psi before airing down this weekend. Just wondering if that's suggested, or if you keep them lower for DD.

I've read that the dealers usually over inflate?

37 is probably the factory suggestion. Check your door frame sticker.

The door frame stickers on my 08 JKUR and 12 JKR, both state 37. Dealers may over inflate. When I got my 12 home I checked and they were at 40.

check it "cold", not after you have been driving around a bit. I try and check in the morning before I start it up and before the sun start warming it up.

Door frame sticker will tell you what they should be set at for a stock setup.

That's what I was wondering -- If I should stick with the factory recommendations, or go lower.

That makes sense, will stick with 37 psi. I thought people were saying to go lower. Looks like they were just saying that dealers over inflate, not to go lower than it says on the sticker.

the only reason to go lower with stock tires is if you are off roading, or driving in conditions that require it (usually off road). For driving on the road with stock tires, set them at what the factory suggests on your door sticker. Best to check the pressure when the tire is cold to get the most accurate reading. Then you can set them properly.

37 is for the BFG tires. You have the GY SRA and your door sticker says 35.

I run my tires between 32-35 on the street. Easiest way to find the best inflation pressure for your tires is stick some duct tape across the tread. If it wears out evenly after driving around a while you're good. If it wears more on the outside you're under inflated. If it wears more in the center you're over inflated.

This and the duct tape idea sound good.

I did check the door, it's supposed to be 35 psi which is what they were at before I aired down. I stopped at Pep boys and bought a good tire gauge.

The funny part is when I came out of the store, there was a brand new red Rubicon parked next to me. They had just bought it and actually worked for the dealer where I bought mine. Turns out they have a web site and organize off road runs.

my new 2012 jku sahara came with p245/75/17 on 17x8 rims and the sticker on the door states 35psi , going to check the real pressure later today as it is handling pretty skiddish and most probably has more pressure in the tyres than that.

I like the chalk idea, just dont follow the tips section below it....

Tips & Warnings

The side of your tire should tell you the proper air pressure in psi units. Follow this measurement to fill the tire properly.
The sidewall of my stock 245/75 17 Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armour states 44 PSI - max, not normal running pressure.

well, i was right, went to check my tyre pressure just now, all inflated 45 psi !! find it a bit irresponsible from the dealer, perhaps they inflate them to the max due to transportation time and standing around the lot etc.., but common.
