If wheels and tires are stock, open the door and there should be a sticker in between the door and the tub with the recommended pressure...22.5 psi seems awful low for stock tires. I'd expect them to be over 30...but can't remember what mine says.

That's low for stock tires. I run 28 PSI for my 33s. You can run them that low, and they'll ride really nice, but they will wear horribly.

Don't trust others to do a job you can and should do yourself.

I just checked my door sticker... 33 psi is what it recommends for the stock tire size. So assuming yours came with the same size tires as mine, 33 psi would be optimal. Either way...on stock tires, I think you're waaaay under-inflated.

re tire pressure

OK,,, here is my life long experience with tire inflation.. I run 36 lbs. And have been for nearly 30 years on all kinds of autos. I have goodyear wranglers on my Liberty CRD, the original tires lasted 52,000 miles. I had, Goodyear MTAs on my Rubicon. they would have gone 60,000 miles, but I upped the ante for our Moab trip back in 10', and bought some BFG MTAs 255/85/16s, and used the original 245/75/16s for the trailer. I now have 23,000 miles on the BFGs. and should easily get 45 to 50 thousand miles out of them. I haven't had a flat tire in nearly 25 years. Low pressure at highway speeds means that the tire is flexing, a lot more than necessary, causing them to heat up. When they heat up, the compounds break down, causing premature tire, wear, and catastrophic failure. In order to run 36psi you must have the proper rim/tire width, or your tires will ballon, causing premature wear. Auto companies always give you lower numbers, as we are plagued with demanding that big American smooth ride. The BFGs that I run have a maximum psi of 65 lbs. most stock passenger tires around 44 lbs. Here is a shot of of my BFGs, with 23,000 miles of wear on them..
