Anywhere from 27 to 32 psi. I used to run 28 in my 35's and they were fine.

Thanks Pete, I need to see what mine are running at, kidneys kind of hurt

Gary, best way to find out is the chalk method. Have your Jeep at normal operating weight (stuff you usually carry around) take a big piece of chalk and run it across each tire's tread. Drive around the block. If the chalk is gone in the center, too much air, on the sides, too little air. When the line is completely gone, it is the exact pressure you want. Best way, now I have to get off my haunches and do that with my new tires!

It depends on the width of the tires and rims. If you have 12.5 wide tires on 8" rims, they will need less pressure than if on 10" rims to wear evenly.
