What should i keep my tire pressure at?

I've got a 94 yj, don't know exactly what kind of tires, the previous owner put them on. The white lettering just said Goodyear Wrangler Radial. Anyone know?

Well, they're probably GY Wrangler radials It'll say on the tire what the MAX pressure is, you DON'T want to go that high... Check what's in them now, and keeping it under the max adjust according to how it feels. If they feel stiff, let some air out, soft add air...You can mark across the tread with a piece of chalk and roll over it a time or two to see how it wears and adjust that way too... What size are they?

Thanks Whitey... Nice link!

Not trying to give you crap OP, I just didn't want to try to explain it if you already know. But then I figured if you did know, you'd be 100% sure what size they are.
