I use around 78% nitrogen. The rest is just air...

Best bet is to buy an AEV Procal...not only will it re-calibrate your speedometer (which is now off cuz of your larger tire size), it will let you adjust the TPMS sensors to whatever PSI you want, or disable them entirely.

I'll definitely put that on my list! Sounds like good value for $150.

Only problem now is the TPMS light is on now. Does it go on when you hit 30 psi?

Worthless IMO. Especially if you're airing down and back up at the trail head. Air is ~70% Nitrogen anyways. I can fill up with my portable air compressor for free.

Max on the tire says 65 PSI which I don't exactly understand how that helps...

When I went wheeling, I took them down to about 15 psi.
I run mine at 30 on the road and 12 offroad.

kbwwolf Here's an old post of mine describing how to do the chalk test. See post #54.

^^^This. 33's should be run at about 30 psi. Don't go by your door placard, and don't trust a tire shop to properly inflate your tires. They routinely overinflate – usually by a ridiculous amount – 4x4 tires.

To find out the optimum road PSI for your tires, do a chalk test. Best way to make sure your tires wear evenly and are properly inflated.

JYJeep 33x10.5 I run about 28-30 psi on road. 12psi off.

Mr Mac While I have 31s and not 33s, we run 32 psi all around.
