For 35's common pressures are between 28 and 32 psi cold.
28 psi will likely ride better, but 32 will likely give better mileage, especially on the highway.

I think I do 30 cold.. I also did a chalk test.. to make sure I get the longest lift outta my tires. at 30 it was pretty darn good and well utilized.

Different tires but I have BFG K02 Load E, I run them around 25-27 cold. I like the ride, but I think i'm going to bring the pressure up a bit as the side can wear a little more than center at this pressure. They are fairly flat at this pressure for me, and it may be affected by the weight of your Jeep. My MPG is about standard, I don't drive a ton of miles anymore.

the more air you have the more the center gets worn down..


the lower the air the more the sides get worn down..


when i did my chalk test, i put my tires at 40PSI, at 40, only the center was touching/being worn..

I run hankook at2s 315/70/17s


just do the chalk test to get the right psi for you tires.. its very easy to do.


40PSI:








30 PSI:

I have the same size on a light JK (4500lbs). I run them at 30 around town in the summer, and 35 on long road trips and in the winter for better traction on icy roads.

Yes, I was saying at my low pressure there will be more shoulder wear (sides) versus center wear. I will likely bring them up a bit.

30 PSI:




Those photos make it appear that at 30 PSI you're running on the inside edge of the tire - might need an alignment (or the photo is misleading).
